Paper & Flowers Workshop

Love paper? Love flowers? Join me on Tuesday, June 14th, for my “Paper & Petals” workshop at The Japanese Paper Place in Toronto. Part of the  2011 Washi Summit, this workshop is pretty, pretty, pretty! I’m having so much fun playing with flowers and fine Japanese papers in preparation. Here are the details:

Paper & Petals – A Perfect Pair

Make flowers even more beautiful by combining them with fine Japanese papers. Using run-of-the-mill flowers from the corner store, as well as lovely stems from local florist Coriander Girl, we will demonstrate several easy-to-make projects. Discover how to “wrap” flowers as a gift, adorn wrapped gifts with flowers, and dress up vessels to create one-of-a-kind vases and centrepieces. Learn how washi can turn cellophane-wrapped flower bunches and potted plants from the corner store into bouquets and centrepieces that look like they came from a high-end florist.

Plus, in a hands-on segment, you will have a chance to make a few decorations (including the paper flowers shown above) to add to your own floral arrangements. Say goodbye to mini mylar birthday balloons and plastic get-well wishes, and say hello to personalized, hand-made messages. Whether for gift-giving, wedding centrepieces, party favours, or just to dress up your own home, paper and flowers can complement each other to spectacular effect.

Tuesday June 14, 7 – 9 pm, $30 + 3.90 hst. Visit for details and how to register, or call The Japanese Paper Place at 416-538-9669.
