Paper Lace Design
Nancy Chin in her book, Spaces for the Spirit, created an art design technique titled, “Paper Lace” that used paper and intricate cut designs to create beautiful hanging artwork. I was tasked with a huge art project for the holiday season where I needed to recruit volunteers to create 14 paper lace banners 18 feet in length. I needed designers, muralists and about 30-40 volunteers. Going into my first production meeting I thought I would have 5 or 6 people. I had 1. What was I going to do? After that first meeting, as I was driving home, I thought, “Be thankful for the one. Work with what you’ve got.” That one person became my champion, because she and I built a solid working relationship based on an atmosphere of trust. We recruited over 40 volunteers over the next 6 weeks and we finished on time for the Christmas season.
