Paper Mache is a very under-appreciated medium. In this class we'll be exploring some of the most basic materials and techniques used to create different types of paper mache projects. Once you've worked with paper mache, I'm sure you'll agree that it's amazing what you can create with just a few simple, cheap materials! In this basic class, we'll use different kinds of paper mache paste, paper, clay and various armatures to create some simple fun craft projects, costume pieces and home decor. While the projects in this class are relatively simple, they are designed to introduce you to the range of possibilities of this wonderful material and get your imagination working!
With the skills you learn in this class, you can enter the Papercraft Contest!
