Iris folding is a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way to form a design. The center of the design forms an iris — a shape reminiscent of the iris diaphragm of a camera lens. Iris folding originated in 20th-century Holland, where early craft people made their designs using patterned paper cut from the inside of envelopes. Join us as we learn this form of design and apply it to cards to send to our congregants. Please bring a favorite pair of scissors and a 6 inch piece of wrapping paper, any design. RSVP to the church office by November 28 so supplies can be obtained.
Are you or someone you know looking for a church home? Have you been a visitor to our church and wondering how to join? If so, please attend our Inquirers' Gatherings.
