Want the look of a happy, healthy houseplant without the maintenance? Take all the hard work out of plant care and construct a paper plant that can easily be mistaken for the real thing. Inspired by the White Caladium plant template from the book Handmade Houseplants by Corrie Beth Hogg, students will use paper and patterns to create their realistic version of the white and pink caladium plants. No watering necessary!
Additional Supplies Needed:
- Cotton swabs
- Rubbing alcohol
- Wire cutter
- 10” vessel
- Crafters foam (enough to fill your 10" vessel)
- Masking tape
- Gravel or ground cover of your choice
Please note: Please select local pick-up or shipping in the dropdown menu. Local pick-up will be at Rochester Brainery on April 30th from 4pm-7pm and May 1st from 10am-5pm. Students will need to continue working outside the Zoom class to finish the overall plant. From beginning to end, the process can take up to 3 hours. This caladium is made up of 15 leaves, 10 large and 5 small in a 10” diameter pot. If you prefer a smaller pot, fewer leaves will be needed to fill the space. The approximate size of the finished paper plant is 15 inches high x 20 inches wide.
This class is appropriate for ages 14+.
This class will take place online through Zoom. Links to Zoom classes will be sent out 1 hour prior to the start of class. If you do not receive your link, please check your spam or submit an email through our contact page.
