Festive Botanicals Workshop with Karen Hsu

Inspired by our Dutch Flowers exhibition, come and learn how to create an everlasting decorative display for the festive season on this botanical paper workshop with Karen Hsu – East-London paper florist and owner of the Pom Pom Factory. She will then demonstrate the different ways in which you can use your handmade paper creations, choosing whether to string them up as part of a statement floral arrangement or arrange them as a festive table runner display.

Using 100% biodegradable and recycled tissue paper, Karen will guide you through the process of creating a range of festive-inspired botanicals, crafted from fine Italian crepe paper and wire.

In this class, you will learn all the basic skills of sculpting with crepe paper and will be able to continue the craft as a fun activity at home with friends and family.
