How to make a folk art card: Card making

Tutor: Judy, folk artist

Folk art is informal, often brightly coloured and highly decorated, artistic work. In this session, folk artist Judy demonstrates a simple painting and decorative technique called ‘daisy doodlecraft’ that can be used for card making and to embellish homewares and even clothing.

Preparation: Gather your card making materials and clear a space to work at.

Activity time: Take as long as you need to create your flower arrangement.

Video time: 7 minutes


Materials and equipment you'll need to take part:

  • Pencil
  • Something round to draw around e.g. the base of a mug
  • Paper - coloured paper works best
  • Card or an old cereal packet
  • Something to make 'dots' with e.g. a small paint brush, nail head, pencil or old pen
  • Paint: acrylic or old tester pots
