Handbag Hens – papier mache magic
Today was SUCH a fabulous day, the best Sunday in a long line of Sundays. I spent it in the company of my closest friend (right) at a papier mache workshop, given by uber talented Krys Pomeroy, in Ennis Creative Arts Centre.
It was a day of firsts – first time at a craft workshop, first time working with papier mache, first time in the arts centre and first time having a Sunday to myself :)
Krys was amazing, generously sharing years and years of experience, templates and tips with all us ladies, and steering us patiently through all the steps, from molding to layering and adding the character. Everyone wanted to go home with a finished hen so we chose to paper the top layer instead of painting – have to try painting so I’ll make two more, for Molly&Me to paint together :) M has named my gingham hen “Googly Goog”
I cannot recommend the Ennis Creative Arts Centre enough to any mum interested in craft or learning a new skill. It’s a fabulous environment to hang out in, such a lovely atmosphere. I am defiantly going to go again and will be keeping a close eye on the class schedule…
Update April 2013
Introducing!!! my new papier mache hen design with a more ‘curve figure’ and arched back.
There have been many many welcomed requests over the past few months for more information on how to make and a pattern, so I finally got my act and time together to create.
