NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, March 4, 2022.

Greet spring with flowers you create in this intensive 3-session course. Begin building your skills with the basic construction of the multi-hued tulip. Then, apply those new skills constructing a daisy’s complex stamen and brawny leaves. In the final session, construct an iris using wire to create dramatically shaped petals. Each session focuses on a different weight and type of crepe paper, including Italian, German, and Chinese. Beginners and seasoned crepe paper crafters are welcome.
