I am planning a Papercraft workshop around the last week of August 2010 in Mumbai. This is a one time opportunity for you to learn a few of the art forms that I use in my work.
The British Council, 901, Tower 1, India Bulls Centre, Elphinstone Road (West), Mumbai – 400013
The tentative list(this list may have slight changes) of activities that we will cover are:
3 or more greeting cards using techniques like
beading – requires stringing glass beads on a card.
quilling – making a card using quilling technique.(We provide all tools and strips for quilling)
working with jute, etc.
Participants will be taught to construct an envelope, moving further we will explore different ideas for closure and decoration.
The art of making jewellery with re-cycled paper.
(This activity will only be possible once we get clearance from the British Council as it requires use of colors)
We will be teaching the participants a few paint textures and techniques like crumpling, using rollers, sponges, stenciling, comb effects, wax effects, etc
Bookmarks are simple to make and are perfect gifts. We teach you a variety of styles using varied raw material.
Paper Quilling Technique
We provide quilling tools to make a variety of items using the quilling technique like cards, tags, etc.
· Each participant gets a craft kit containing paper and relevant raw material. We provide you with kits so that you can spend more time on the activities. For example: we even thread the needle to save time. At the end of the session participants can take what they make along with the leftover material.
· Participants do not need to get anything with them. We provide all instruments and stationery like colour pencils, tools, cutting mats, blades, crayons, felt pens, glue, scissors, etc. These have to be returned.
