Making Paper Moths

I’ve led many artist demonstrations at Opus over the last few years, but yesterday I attended my first as a participant. Tara Galuska is an illustrator working with paper, and I was curious to attend her demo and see up close how she creates some of her work.

She led about fifteen of us in a two hour workshop on making a papercraft moth. Tara provided us all with a template to follow and we were left to our own devices to customize our moths through paper and design choices. Below are some of the finished moths by class participants.

I enjoyed this class because it allowed me to work with paper in a different way than my usual approach. I love the little moth I created, and the process gave me lots of new things to think about.
