Crafting with Flattened Straws

New techniques

Individual straws can be split and flattened.  
My first ventures were simply applying flattened straw backgrounds for other items.

Cards

Card making is always a popular activity.Cards with a few straw shapes, cut out free hand or with a craft puncher, are a delight to receive as the straw has a beautiful shine making every design special.

I have a large stock of cards and am always willing to create a card for that 'special occasion'Card making is also offered as a workshop activity. Straws are usually prepared in advance. However straws can also be purchased and guidance will be given in the preparation and handling of straws enabling you to experiment in your own time.

More complex Projects

More complex projects involve the use of marquetry skills. The modern works of Lison de Caunes will amaze, as will the Chinese straw art works of the past.
