Crafting With The Maker: Jane Sayre Denny


Learn the Basics of Decoupage

BirdhouseAt our first Crafting with the Maker we will be learning the basics of decoupage by turning a simple wooden birdhouse into a work of art!  The class will be taught by local maker Jane Sayre Denny.

Decoupage or découpage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf, and other decorative elements. Commonly, an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or from purpose-manufactured papers.

In this class we will be providing the birdhouses, brushes and the glue. We will also have various sets of paper to choose to decorate your house from but if you have something you love at home, feel free to bring it! Napkins work great, tissue paper or other similar style decorative papers. Heavier card stock is NOT appropriate for this craft.

Register For the Class

This class is limited to 8 people and will be held on the deck at 6 Depot Street, Suite 104, Washingtonville, NY 10992.
