[Paper goodness at The School]
Warning - I may get a little emotional in this post. Last Saturday I hosted my first paper art class at The School in Sydney and it was AWESOME! The class mostly consisted of adults but THEN we had a little table for a group of five gorgeous, super creative, intelligent mini grown ups [aka the cool kids on The School block]. The children blew me away with their attention to detail, careful choice of colour combinations and original ideas. Rosettes were turned into award ribbons, necklaces, decorations and Blank Goods paper tape was used to cover everything in sight.
I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly grateful I am for having the opportunity to share what I love with everyone. My heart melted when asked questions such as "Marsha, do you think this shade of gold or this gold would go best here?" by 13 year old Rupert [the only boy in the class and the one who took out the award for best rosette maker of the day]. Ohmygosh - my heart aches just thinking about it all!
Thank you to all the adults for being patient as I went back and forth from the kids table. I couldn't have wished for a better group of women. Special shout out to Nat - you took Rosette making to a whole new level, I can't wait to see where you take them next!
Thanks to my dear friend Neil Kenna for helping me out with pretty much everything. Danie from Blank Goods for suppling me with lots of delicious paper tape, stickers, gift tags and paper boxes…… and of course Megan Morton for having me at her amazing School of creativity.
