On Paper Wings: Building Paper Birds Workshop with Shannon Delany
Join us at Fenimore Art Museum for On Paper Wings: Building Paper Birds Workshop on Saturday, August 10 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Led by Shannon Delany, participants will use basic techniques of papercutting and paper folding to create a raised, multidimensional bird or winged creature on a background that they can then put into a shadow box frame. Students should bring images of birds as references for this project. The workshop is suitable for any adult or teen with good hand-eye coordination, patience, and scissor or X-acto blade handling competence. Materials are included with the workshop fee. Cost: $67 (members) and $75 (non-members). Register at Eventbrite.com or call (607) 547-1510.
