Instructor: Hillary Price
Paper doesn’t only have to be flat and static. In this camp it will find a new life in three dimensional forms. Learn the technique of repurposing recycled paper to make air-dry paper clay. Just wait to see what your paper can do. Parents will participate in this one-day workshop with their child(ren) to ensure safe handling of hand mixer and materials.
