Let’s Get Together Safely to Make Paper Crowns
Tired of staying inside?
We are too. 1+1=1 Gallery is (safely) celebrating the re-opening of our lives and classroom by hosting a paper crown-making workshop, taught by favorite local artist, Bonnie Lambert.
Come have fun with us
Spend a day making paper crowns with all kinds of scraps, doodads and thingamajigs—cardboard, paper, ribbons, fabrics, buttons, dried flowers and leaves, seed pods, wire, odds and ends, tape, photos, old books, drawing tools, and lots of other bits and pieces. We will have plenty of inspiring, delightful and sometimes humorous materials for you to use. If you wish, bring your own materials you may have stashed for creative projects.
We offer a place to gather in a small group with awareness of social distancing and safety
We know there are hundreds of online/video/zoom workshops available. There is just something about the synergy of an in-person group to get our creative juices flowing. We will make sure the classroom is set up for safe social distancing, and that we practice sanitary procedures to keep you and our community healthy. For that reason, the workshop is limited to just 6 participants. Register early to make sure you have a space.

Why make crowns? For birthdays or other celebrations. To give as a gift. To make a portrait. To remind yourself that you are awesome.
Can I bring my own stuff? Yes we encourage you to bring materials that are special to you.
What if I want to use an old photo? That’s totally a thing. Bring a copy of an old photo so you can save the original.
How many crowns can I make during the workshop? Make up to four crowns depending on how quickly you work and how detailed you make your crowns.
“I’m a storyteller: I give you a story, you make it yours. I photograph clouds, water, buildings, fences, flowers, trees, rocks, vegetables, books; print the photo; place, pin, paste, tape, tie, balance three-dimensional objects onto that photo, and rephotograph. I save ribbon, paper, flowers, sticks, rope, tape, lace, sprouted grape hyacinth; I use chalk, wire, gold leaf, colored pencil, charcoal, fresh flowers: all tools for storytelling. I construct photographic narratives, sometimes autobiographical, often stories I would like to “read.” I invite the viewer to make their own narrative.” ~Bonnie Lambert
