Taught by Kate Alercon. Come celebrate peony season, and learn to make this surprisingly simple paper peony with local flower-maker, Kate Alarcon! This pretty bloom is made of layers of European crepe paper in two different weights; it’s perfect for beginners, and also a great one to have in your flower-making repertoire, since it works up so quickly and adds so much drama and texture to an arrangement. You’ll learn how to build a flower around a wire, how to cut and shape petals, and, time permitting, how to add a little foliage to decorate your stem. We’ll make one flower together during the workshop, and you’ll take home supplies for two more so you can practice at home. All materials and tools provided. This class is limited to ten people, so register soon to reserve your spot! Kate Alercon is a Seattle based paper artist whose highly detailed and unusual works have been featured in a number of publications including Seattle Met Bride and Groom magazine. Membership status will be verified upon registration.
