paper weaving

ALL spring classes at beehive tried their hands at paper weaving. 
It's tricky, but once you get the hang of it...  oooooo la la!  
A beautiful collection of color and focus. 
YAY beehive kids!

PAPER Lanterns

We made these gorgeous paper lanterns last week during All Things Paper.
Three layers (let each layer dry over night)  of white tissue brushed onto a balloon with mostly white glue thinned with water. The last layer we added was a glittered white tissue.   
We had 3 ft. dowels (we've used long sticks which I still think is my fav) and wrapped them up with colored tissue strips.

Bakers twine, a needle and some clever stitching secured the lantern to the dowel. 

Beautiful, delicate, glowing orbs.. my summertime favorite.

Jennifer Collier bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects. the papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. the papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms.  

LOOK  here for more goodness.

Paper Houses

We designed these paper house (lanterns) for an event in Boston last spring. 
I have been wanting to make them with the children at Beehive since. 
It's a tricky project with precise cutting of dowels and paper, 
the Advanced Art Exploration Class ( 9-14 yrs) was a perfect fit.
A sneak peak today of the materials, pattern, and assemblage.
