paper maché

This is an opportunity to play with Paper Maché. Let Kentuck absorb the mess, while you have fun with your littles, or on your own, using household items to make something functional and beautiful.


We will be using a no cook method to make our own glue, along with old newspaper strips over a balloon to make a bowl. This is a two part class as the process is long, and the project will need time to dry before finishing.


Part one will be Friday July 8, 10-10:30 AM. Part two will be Saturday July 9, 10-10:30AM.


This class is for all ages, but children 10 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.

There is a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 16. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded. 

Please email Molly Nelko, Program Assistant,  at with any questions.
