The Art of Crepe Paper Flower Making: Hibiscus

  • 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 your own summer staple, the hibiscus . You will learn added skills like wiring and how the use of acrylic paints and other materials can bring your flower to life. You'll complete (at least) one hibiscus in class and take materials, templates and a detailed guide to make more at home. Come and capture that tropical feel!
