OAKHURST – The Oakhurst Library is hosting a workshop presented by Carla Hyatt from Bakersfield. At the class, participants will make two sculpted Christmas wreaths and a Thanksgiving pumpkin. Carla will teach her audience how to use the ancient art of folding paper into various artistic shapes.
Carla is a retired math teacher and often used origami to demonstrate mathematic concepts to her middle-school students. Origami helped her teach fractions and geometry and now she is applying her skills to making these unique Christmas decorations.
“Give one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Christmas wreaths this year using origami. Have fun and make something special, too,” says Carla. Anyone aged 11 and older is invited – children and adults. The class is limited to the first 40 people to pre-register at (559) 683-4838. All supplies will be provided. Each student make the decorations and can take their projects with them when they leave the class. Thank you to FOBL for sponsoring this event.
