Taught by Courtney Cerruti
Create your own totem animal using found and recycled papers. In this workshop, Courtney will show you how to make these adorable paper birds (ours are lovingly named "Ernesto and Lillian") to liven up any room or festive occasion. You will learn how to work with wire, cut various styles of realistic and whimsical feathers and form the body and features using recycled paper. With these skills you can go on to immortalize your pet schnauzer or your beloved parakeet with pages from old, worn out books in this ingenious workshop!
