The Art of Crepe Paper Flower Making: Dahlias


Paper flower making has been practiced around the world for centuries and now it's your opportunity to try your hand at this long standing tradition.

Learn the art of paper flowers with Emily of Revery Paper Flora. Emily will teach the basics of European crepe paper along with the skills and techniques to create the most requested flower to date: the dahlia.

You will learn how to use a combination of German and Italian crepe paper and artist pastels to create a life-like recreation of an open centered varietal. You will learn some tips and tricks including how pastels can create depth and texture to bring your paper flowers to life. You will leave the workshop with a detailed guide, templates and materials to create more dahlias at home. Dahlia season may be fleeting but your paper flowers don't play by the same rules.

Join us for a lovely afternoon of flower making!

Tickets: $70



About your host, Emily

Emily Paluska is the paper artist behind Revery Paper Flora. Her work has been shared by Design Seeds, Craftsposure and Lia Griffith. Her inability to keep real plants alive in conjunction with her obsession with all things botanical, led to the creation of RPF. You can most often find her at her desk on Capitol Hill surrounded by hundreds of rolls of paper, cutting late into the night. She believes that exercising one's creative muscles leads to a happier life and hopes that by sharing her love of paper flowers with others, can help others find their creative spirit too.
