We’ll be folding, tearing, rolling, and weaving with newspaper. The fun thing about learning this skill is that the materials are very affordable, so even if you make a mistake, it’s not that costly.

Registration Includes

Instruction and all materials.

Skill Level

No prior experience needed, but you will need a little bit of hand strength (Herculean strength is NOT required!).

Best for Ages…

12 and older.

You should bring…

If you have a stack of newspapers to bring (the equivalent of a single Sunday paper), that would be great. The newspaper can be colored or black & white, depending on how you want your project to turn out. Otherwise, we’ll have enough for everyone.
