Description

Novena: Art Course (Decoupage) 12 sessions - Aug 15 to Nov 7 (Wed)

(*Seniors enjoy a National Silver Academy subsidy)

Decoupage is an art of decorating objects with paper cut-outs or with beautiful European-style napkins.

The word decoupage comes from the French word "decouper", which means "to cut". The paper or napkin cut-outs are glued onto everyday objects, then covered with several coats of varnish to give an appearance of depth. This makes patterns and pictures look as though they are actually painted on the decoupaged object.

Decoupage can be learned fairly quickly in just a few steps. Best of all, participants could "recycle" their used items to bring them to "live" again. Using the various techniques of Decoupage, you will be able to decorate just about any object, from bags, pouch, glass bottles, porcelain plates, wooden boxes, to even large pieces of furniture.
