HANDMADE SHRINE



My sister Val, recently attended an amazing workshop at Primrose Paper Arts in Sydney. She had the pleasure of learing how to make a handmade shrine to display precious items from ones own 'private' collection.

The very talented Sandy Webster from USA was teaching an amazing class. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend. Val was happy to teach me what she had learned from Sandy.

The shrine was made from box board. Each piece was carefull measured and cut out. Handmade paper was painted and carefully covered each piece. It was then all assembled together. It was very time consuming, but well worth the effort.

Our thanks go out to Sandy Webster, not only for her creative talents, but also for sharing them with her students. I hope to catch one of her classes next time she is in Sydney.

Meanwhile, Primrose Paper Arts have some amazing classes on offer.... go check them out.
