Cherry Blossoms

  • Solid State Books 600f H Street Northeast Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

Join Emily Paluska, the artist behind Revery Paper Flora, for an evening of paper flower making!

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN: In this workshop, you will learn the basics of European crepe paper along with the skills and techniques to create realistic paper flowers. We will create your very own cherry blossom branch, the quintessential spring darling of DC. You'll complete one branch in class and take materials, templates and a detailed guide to make another branch at home. No need to worry about catching peak bloom this year when you can create your own.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Emily Paluska is the paper artist behind Revery Paper Flora. Her work has been shared by Design Seeds, Craftsposure and Lia Griffith. Her inability to keep real plants alive in conjunction with her obsession with all things botanical, led to the creation of RPF. You can most often find her at her desk on Capitol Hill surrounded by hundreds of rolls of paper, cutting late into the night. She believes that exercising one's creative muscles leads to a happier life and hopes that by sharing her love of paper flowers with others, can help others find their creative spirit too.
