Get ready for Halloween! Working with wire and sturdy crepe paper in a multitude of colors, make a paper flower crown with botanical paper artist Tiffanie Turner. In this workshop, you will learn to make simple versions of four types of flowers (roses, godetia, bougainvillea, and poppies), and use them to adorn your crown. Crepe paper colors will be provided for everything from bright, Frida Kahlo-esque flowers to dark, creepy crown designs, and anything in between. Tiffanie will also provide black feathers and netting, and various ribbons and pompom trims to add to your crown. If you've got anything else you'd like to bring with you (think cicada wings or plastic bugs), please do!
Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
Tiffanie Turner is an artist who explores nature and botany in large and small scales in paper. She is a wife, mother of two young children, and a licensed California architect. Her work in paper stems from her background as an architect, particularly her interest in construction and repetitive motifs, along with her lifelong passion for flowers and botanical drawings. Her work can be seen around the Bay Area when she is exhibiting, online at www.papelsf.com, and next spring at the de Young Museum where she will be the artist in residence for the month of May 2016.
