Create a beautiful paper butterfly in a box, with live, half-day virtual workshop.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Everyone loves butterflies and we’ve all seen those displays in boxes and marvelled at the diversity and beauty of these ephemeral insects. But putting real butterflies on your wall is not to everyone’s taste, but suppose you could make them out of paper……... A taxidermy paper butterfly, that looks just like the real thing.
MEET YOUR ARTIST
This virtual, live class is run by Zack Mclaughlin, who will teach you how to metamorphosise paper and wire until it emerges as a delicate butterfly. Zack is a fantasy artist and sculptor, with a love of nature. He creates his work using wood, paper and clay.
All materials you need will be provided in kit form.
- 180gms coloured pastel paper
- 0.5mm and 0.9mm craft wire
- paper embossing tool
- Templates and instructions
- tracing paper + pencil
- Monthly Live, online 1/2 day (4 hour) workshop
- All the instructions.
You will need to provide your own scissors and craft knife as these are dangerous to post. Your own paints, preferably acrylic paints, but the paper will take any paint you like.
The process will take 4 hours.
