Instructor: Kris Koch

In this second workshop, students will practice precision paper cutting while they create 3D paper spheres called puzzle balls. Puzzle balls are easy to cut and assemble and can be embellished and transformed into all sorts of decorative objects.  After a brief review of paper-cutting basics (see Woven Heart May Day Basket description), students will learn how to make and cut-out templates; cut pieces and assemble at least 1 and up to 5 puzzle balls; embellish a puzzle ball with crystals, pearls or beads; and turn a puzzle ball into a puzzle posy, ornament or kissing ball. We’ll also discuss color combinations and patterns.
