About

Iris Folding – is done by arranging and layering strips of paper or fabric in a spiraled pattern that resembles the iris of a camera lens–that’s how this craft got its name.

Paper Tole – is a technique in which part or all of an image is raised from the surface to give a 3 dimensional effect which enhances the natural shape of the image. It is a technique that can be used with stamping, or by using existing pictures or images.

Silk Painting – A common method of painting on silk is applying a “resist” to the fabric and then dyeing or painting the fabric. The areas that have been treated repel the paint, so they will remain white while the rest of the fabric is colored. This is an easy way to paint on silk and gives your painting sharp, crisp lines.

Card Making is the craft of hand-making greeting cards. Many people with interests in allied crafts such as scrapbooking and stamping have begun to use their skills to start making handmade cards. This has contributed to cardmaking becoming a popular hobby.
