ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Sarah Yakawonis has a passion for paper art and a desire to share her knowledge in person, in kits and online. She Graduated from the Maine College of Art in 2009 with a BFA in design. During a trip to NYC that year she visited the Museum of Design and saw a show called, Slash: Paper Under The Knife. That sparked a love of paper art that lives to this day! In 2012 she became enamored with paper flowers, since that time she has been obsessed with creating the most accurate paper flowers. Experimenting with innumerable combinations of papers and techniques, she takes all of that expertise and puts it into kits so people can skip all of the hard stuff and enjoy an afternoon making truly amazing paper flowers. She loves sharing that special joy that comes from making something beautiful with as many people as she can!
