Studio-boutique "PAPILLON -", a magical home for design and creation in "papier mâché ", was founded in 2011 by the artist Renia Gavriel-Baron, herself bearing a unique and refreshing personality. The studio is located in the center of Ramat Hasharon; it is a stimulating hothouse that inspires creative work in papier mâché. On a day-to-day basis the Studio hosts children and adults for courses, classes and workshops, along with the sale and display of unique and beautiful items. The colorful studio is run by a staff of professionals, who believe in safeguarding the environment, therefore the studio’s operation itself is based on using recycled and eco-friendly materials with emphasis on a unique design for each participant. The leading motto is: "everyone can", you can either join a single workshop, a course of several meetings, or an ongoing activity as well as a private workshop.
All activities at the studio are accompanied by personal and professional training, in an intimate group, after choosing an individual work = your project, from your imagination or inspiration from books (that can also be found in the studio), advancing at a pace adapted to each participant, all in a supportive and warm atmosphere, allowing anyone to find a way for creative expression, while disconnecting from the world for a few hours. With the guidance of Renia and her staff yesterday’s newspapers are transformed by the students into original and aesthetic works. All creations, starting from products for daily use up to decorative gifts and colorful human-size sculptures, are hand-crafted from top to bottom, including building, modeling and painting skills. Courses at Studio "PAPILLON" are held on a day-to-day basis: courses for adults, children's classes, workshops and various "Open Studio" days for children.
