Event description

Description

CLASS DESCRIPTION Students will learn paper folding techniques using a variety of papers. These techniques can be used to create origami models such as birds, insects, flowers, pinwheels, suncatchers, cards, boxes, etc. This class will focus on creating multiple floral models. Students will have the opportunity to work with specialty Japanese Yuzen papers. We will also learn modular construction techniques.

INSTRUCTOR Artist Beth Magyan has been a ceramic artist for many years and only recently discovered the wonders of paper. It is an immediate and gratifying creative outlet - one that she never imagined working in. Some time ago tshe took a break from clay and discovered the beauty of Japanese Yuzen papers and the therapeutic value of the repetition of folding paper. Working in both mediums represents a creative balance for her and it works.
