Decoupage Workshop
By My Art Piece

Decoupage is the art of decorating objects with paper cutouts and paint effects (if necessary). These cutouts are glued to the surface and several coats of varnish are applied to give it a lacquered finish. The finished products are so stunning that they are often mistaken to be professionally painted. Fun and therapeutic, it is an easy art to embellish just about any objects and material.

Participants at this workshop will be guided to the art of decoupage by using paper napkins to decoupage onto an 8” PU Pouch.

Date: 3 December, Saturday
Time: 10.30am to 12.30pm | 2pm to 4pm
Cost: $25/pax 
Venue: Enabling Village, Hive block – My Art Piece Decoupage Studio
