Papier-Mâché – Paper Comes Alive

July 26, 2021 - July 30, 2021

5 days

Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Taught by Lisa May Tobin

Ages 9-12

Papier-Mâché is a French term that literally translates as chewed paper – a process that dates back to the Han Dynasty (200 AD) in China. Students will fashion their own armature or surface – think masks, picture frames, imaginative creatures, and more – and then wrap with the prepared strips of paper. Once dry, these one-of-a-kind creations can be sanded and painted.
