Crepe Paper Dahlias

  • The Lemon Collective 808 Upshur Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20011 United States (map)

Paper flower making has been practiced around the world for centuries and now it's your opportunity to try your hand at this long standing tradition.

Learn the art of paper flowers with Emily of Revery Paper Flora. Emily will teach the basics of European crepe paper along with the skills and techniques to create the most requested flower to date: the dahlia.

You will learn how to use a combination of German and Italian crepe paper and artist pastels to create a life-like recreation of an open centered varietal. You will learn some tips and tricks including how pastels can create depth and texture to bring your paper flowers to life. You will leave the workshop with a detailed guide, templates and materials to create more dahlias at home. Dahlia season may be fleeting but your paper flowers don't play by the same rules.

Join us for a lovely afternoon of flower making!
