Art Star is pleased to announce a book signing with author and expert crafter, Kayte Terry on First Friday, November 2nd from 6-8pm. Kayte will be here promoting her new book Paper Made!, which features over 100 really cool projects to make out of paper. She will have books on hand for you to purchase/have signed & also will be demonstrating one of the projects in the book – the Kirigami Wallflowers. Guests can try their hand at making them too & will get to take home what they create!
I plan on making a bunch to incorporate into Art Star’s Window display. I have a copy of this book & can’t wait to try some of the projects. I love that many of the materials needed can just be found around the house, so you won’t need to spend any money to make many of the things in the book. Some of my favorites include “Strike Your Fancy Matchbook” that you hide a secret message inside, a curio shelf made from layers of corrugated cardboard, a beautiful hanging lamp inspired by the designs of Tord Boontje, giant paper pom-poms, and too many wearable accessories to list here.
So come by, have a boozy drink, make some colorful flowers with us & pick up a copy of the book! And like every First Friday, all Art Star purchases (does not include the book) are 10% off. See you then! And hey, check out our facebook invite & let us know if you can make it. Reservations are not required, but it will give us an idea of how much paper to have on hand. (maybe bring your own scissors if you can?) Free & open to all.
