Making Art Together

Paper Cut Patterns

There is nothing like the prospect of a busy event to get us excited about creating on a large scale! For this summer's Free Fun Friday, supported by the Highland Street Foundation, we wanted to explore materials in a big way.

With the help of hundreds of people, we soon covered the walls, windows and tabletops in pattern and color! READ MORE
