CALENDAR 2020

This is a great time to make art, make boxes, books, and create beautiful papers. Plus it is just palin fun to join a group of like minded people for several hours of creative work and play!

 ZOOM CLASSES

I will send a materials and tools list before the class so you can be ready with board and paper cut to size.There is also an optional materials pack you can order for an additional charge which will have most, if not all, pieces already cut to size.Many of my classes also have a companion YouTube video available if the scheduled day or time is not convenient or if you need a review. 

All times are given in Central Standard Time, USA.

CHINESE THREAD BOOK

ZHEN XIAN BAO - The Chinese Thread Book

Women in Southwestern China had a tradition of carrying these little paper sewing kits in their pockets, so their tools and materials were always handy.  They are cleverly made, with up to 16  compartments, using paper folding techniques.  The Zhen Xian Bao is full of both secrets and surprises and can be adapted into an interesting book or card.

FACIAL TISSUE CUBE

I adore functional art - and what could be more functional than a box you can display with pride in any room of the house. Applying basic cartonnage skills we will use gorgeous papers to create two very practical and lovely boxes - perhaps the perfect holiday gift!

Zoom classes require a tablet, phone, or computer on which to download the Zoom App and Internet capable of streaming.  If you have never used Zoom, it is very easy and a great way to take a class when we can’t meet in person.  I will send the link a week prior to the class - on the day of the class, just click on the link and I will invite you to enter. 

If you wish to register, please email me at: nakerly@charter.net.  I will send a Paypal link for payment, or you can mail me a check.
