Join Shellie for a relaxing and mindful afternoon creating Kusudama Origami Flowers using upcycled books, papers, buttons and more. Kusudama in Japanese translates as medicine ball. Kasdama were traditionally made using real flowers and herbs to hold incense or potpourri.  Decorative Kusudama are made with paper or fabric origami units and glued or sewn together.

Shellie’s favourite mediums are wool felt and vintage papers, and she loves combining them with objects found in nature.

She has always been captivated by miniatures and loves creating small-scale works to capture the imagination.
