Winter Solstice Workshop with Anette Larsson
As the days grow shorter, we light fires and bring out blankets in preparation for a long winter ahead. In this workshop we will create a vellum paper star that will bring some much needed light and brightness into our environment. The process to make the star is simple but time consuming, and it is most fun to do in a group of people.
Description of Activities/Project:
Using a template, each participants will cut out 3 different shapes to create 5 different separate star shapes on vellum paper. After folding and assembling each shape, the five stars are then assembled in stages using a glue gun or glue stick.
Skill set required: (ie beginner, crochet, knitter, painter etc.,) Strong hands - Scissors will be used extensively, as well as a glue gun.
ALL Materials included:
Vellum paper, scissors, glue guns and glue sticks, cardboard, string, hole punch, and box to take the star home!
