Virtual Artists Trail Workshop: Papercraft with Leila

26/05/20 11am Online

We are running a whole series of online workshops during the Sydenham Arts Virtual Artists Trail 2020! We strongly recommend booking your place through Eventbrite so you don’t miss out!

In this workshop, Leila will share one of her many skills- Papercraft.

You will learn an easy technique, which we will use to first make a hanging ornament. Once you’ve learned that, we will make a flower and if there is still time left we will make card with this technique. I will also show you some more advanced things made using this technique to give you ideas and inspiration to do other projects.

Recycling is encouraged, it is a sustainable workshop depending on materials used. If you are short on materials the most important thing is paper, scissors and glue.

This workshop has been specially adapted so that more people can join in from home! Here’s a full list below. If you can’t get it all, don’t panic! You can still join in and learn some useful tips.

What you will Need:

  • a pen/pencil
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • a ruler
  • a glass to draw around
  • any kind of paper – colourful catalogues/magazines, wrapping paper or craft paper patterned or plain
  • a smaller piece of slightly stiffer paper, bit of magazine cover or thin card.
  • string/thread
  • Optional extras: Beads, card (can be from food boxes), thin sticks or wooden/bamboo skewers,
  • PREPARATION– If possible, Leila would like you to prepare (cut out) 8 pieces of 8cmx8cm paper squares and/or 8 circles 8cm diameter ( roughly). We will use these for the first practice run.

This workshop will take place on Zoom- you can download the app here, and will be sent a link once you have booked!

This class is suitable for Adults and older children (12+). A similar workshop for younger children and families is taking place on 4th June.
