Papier Mâché Group

Papier Mache literally means chewed paper and was invented in China in the Second Century. It has been used as a creative technique for centuries, far and wide and with very varied applications. For example, it has been used for stucco mouldings, boats, furniture, colourful products for folk traditions, picture frames, decorative boxes, screens, paintings and trays, puppets but also fun and frivolous animal sculptures to name but a few! The technique is simplicity itself, all you need is paper (any kind- good for the recycling!), a flour and water based glue, sometimes a little wire and masking but most importantly, imagination. It is fun and sticky and everyone can do it!
