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 DC's own state flower, the rose. You will learn added skills like wiring and how the use of artist pastels can make your flower come to life. You'll complete one rose in class and take materials, templates and a detailed guide to make more at home. No more sad grocery store roses when you can create your own that are made to last.
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.
