Melbourne stationary and design maven Christina Re has always has an insatiable passion for DIY, a love that has lead her to become the go-to-girl for customised invitations, stationary sets and lifestyle products.
This month she wants to share her passion with other Melbourne creatives with a series of paper art workshops to help clients broaden their paper skills beyond the humble invite to show-stopping pieces of art.
Re’s Origami Heart Card and Paper Couture workshops will be run out of her Collingwood store Where A Girl Goes and explore the finer art of paper folding and origami.
Floral Art Workshop
There’s nothing better than a bunch of freshly picked flowers to energise and brighten up the home. But as the week goes on, your once vibrant arrangement more closely resembles a garden party massacre. So create a bouquet that never fades at the Floral Art Workshop. This workshop will teach participants to create a paper floral bouquet that will never wilt and die. Learn a combination of paper folding and traditional origami techniques that will turn a piece of paper into a work of art.
Date: Sat 23 Feb and Sat 2 Mar, 11.00am – 1.00pm
Fashion Doll Workshop
Paper dolls, that other childhood friend with an endless wardrobe, are normally left in the realm of adolescent memories. But why not get in touch with your inner child and create your own paper fashion doll? Participants will be guided by Christina Re to not only create a doll but also dress and accessorise with the array of designer papers.
Dates: Sat 9, 16, 23, 30 Mar, 11.00am – 1.00pm
