Carnegie Hall’s 2021 Fall Classes & Workshops are underway and spots are still available for classes which include pottery, painting, music, basket weaving, song writing, soap making, movement, and in the fall session, quilting and silk paper making. These unique learning opportunities are taught primarily in small group settings at Carnegie Hall.
On Monday, Sept. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. and Tuesday, Sept. 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., teaching artist Suzanne Williams will teach Making Silk Paper Session 2. Participants will learn how to make silk paper using an easy-going process called silk fusion in which you create paper from silk fibers. By laying out silk fibers in successive rows and layers and adding little bits of yarn and sparkle, students will create beautiful art paper. Students need to bring an old unwanted dish towel. All other materials will be provided. Students must be 18 or older and registration is $80 for members and $90 for nonmembers.
