Paper Weaving with past exhibition postcards with Contemporary Craft
Give Contemporary Craft’s postcards from past exhibitions new life through paper weaving! Paper weaving is a fun and simple art, with countless potential using pattern and color. After the participants finish with the paper weaving, they can turn the piece into a holiday ornament! Once learned, paper weaving is something that can be done at home with magazines, junk mail, and more.
