Falls Church Arts Hosting Virtual Toilet Paper Art Workshop

A local artist will teach people over Zoom how to turn cardboard toilet paper tubes into mini works of art.

The upcoming class is a part of the recent offerings from Falls Church Arts, a nonprofit arts organization based in Falls Church. The Zoom class will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday (Aug. 6). It costs $30 and is open to teens and adults.

“They are just so adorable,” Ruth Altheim, who is a board member for Falls Church Arts, told Tysons Reporter about the toilet paper roll art. “It’s hard to communicate how much fun this is.”

Altheim noted that the upcoming workshop will focus on collage.

Altheim said she suggested the idea for the workshop, which will be taught by local artist Molly McCracken.

To participate, people will need either a toilet paper or paper towel cardboard core, scissors, glue, different types of paper and either crayons or markers.

A flyer for the class says that construction paper, wrapping paper, magazines, newsprint, colored paper or photographs will work. People who need paper can pick up a “basic supply” from the instructor for $5.
