What You’ll Learn

In the morning session, each participant learns 6 basic paper techniques and makes 4 references pieces, using two of the techniques in each. This is a hands-on session. (see examples below)

Materials You’ll Bring

1) Scissors–1 pair large, one pair small precision-point. At least one pair should have silicone-coated blades, because we will be cutting adhesive materials.

2) Xacto knife with extra blades

3) Self-healing cutting mat

4) Straight-edge ruler

5) Drawing compass, protractor, triangle

6) Glue–I recommend Mod Podge, because it is fairly fast-drying, and holds well.

7) Toothpicks, plastic pallette knife for gluing

8) Bone folder–These can be found in the paper craft area of most craft stores. Most are actually plastic now, not bone.

9) Optional–papers that you may have around.
