I will be teaching my 'Victorian Paper Folly' class this saturday at the CASTLE! There is still plenty of room. Here is the description:
Victorians loved to create elaborate 'tableaux' for holidays and other special occasions. Often these tableaux mimicked architectural follies popular at the time, which were miniature, nonfunctional buildings designed to enhance the natural landscape. You'll create your own romantic structure from a concoction of small paper boxes, paper tubes, antique printed paper, crepe paper, and Dresden. Yours will look charming as a picturesque centerpiece or under a glass dome as part of your collections.
Fee: $115.00, includes all materials
Saturday May 23, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Please call (510) 204-9801 to reserve your spot.
My inspiration for this class came from a lovely paper folly owned by a dear friend of mine - whose taste is exceptional! I loved the simplicity and charm of her piece and knew instantly it would make a fabulous class! This antique was possibly used at a wedding, but I like to imagine it being created just for the pleasure of having something beautiful around...
