On Saturday March 14th at 10:30am at Gather in downtown Cary, Raleigh based paper crafter Santana Douglass will be teaching a paper houseplant craft class. You can register for that class here. Green thumb not required. 😉
Here are some inspiring pieces from Brooklyn-based artist Corrie Beth Hogg who wrote the book Handmade Houseplants which I discovered last year at the library and that has inspired this upcoming class.
Corrie’s work combines paper crafting and paint into incredibly realistic “plants”. With careful attention to shape, color and structure she’s created the illusion of something real that has the potential to have a much longer lifespan in your home than an actual plant depending on your plant nurturing skills. No judgement, it can be hard!
Join me and local paper crafter Douglass Santana in an upcoming class at Gather inspired by Corrie’s work and book on Saturday March 14th at 10:30am at Gather. You will learn the techniques to making these plants and walk away with your own as well as the knowledge to apply towards others. You can register for the class here.
