FREE Scroll-making Workshop Feb. 22

display-ca-bonsaiIf there’s anything harder to find than good scrolls, it’s good little scrolls. On February 22 at PFM Bonsai you can make your own for FREE under the guidance of Molly Beverage and Sandy Kiszkiel who have completed the ABS workshop for this ancient craft. The scroll size of 3″ wide by 11.5″ deep is perfect for small tokonoma displays. Scrolls will be made of paper-backed silk and the inset art will be 6” x 2 ¼” on heavy watercolor paper. There will be space and supplies to create your own art for the scroll or you can bring a piece of art from home to use.

There are many steps involved in scroll making so the workshop will begin at 10 am, break for lunch and a short club meeting, and then finish up after lunch.

There will be no charge to members for the workshop, but as there are some items that will be purchased specifically for the workshop, we are asking members RSVP to Molly at mbevera@gmail.com to reserve your place BY FEB 8. See the MHBS February TWIG for fabric choices.
