"I was SO excited to participate in the online class. It was a complete JOY on all levels. I had no hesitation what so ever to attend.
During the class I learned so many great things !! I leaned helpful new techniques in painting eyes, I struggled with in the past. I learned to think about paper in many different ways. I have always loved using textiles in my art work and I LOVE how she showed us how to use paper like DRAPED fabric!!
I am thinking of ways to use paper as fabric everywhere ! I loved the presentation of every video! I came to adore her Laetitia. Her sweet way of encouraging us to make it "very very pretty” or "super pretty” has stolen my heart !! :) it was a delight to participated it and she shared her heart with us.
She is very generous with her techniques and information, and tips during every video ! I loved the angles she shots the lesson with and that she made it difficult on yourself to provide a great shot… quality. I like that there were loose measurements … it casual and thats good sometimes when doing art !
I loved that the lessons were challenging but with her help very achievable. The accessories classes lead to endless possibilities to imagine after learning this technique.
If you hesitate to dive into these beautiful lessons in Laetitias workshop for ANY reason..
DO IT ! They are truly magical, and I know magic !!! :) "

" I am a big fan / supporter of her work and had no idea how she was working especially the barock style. I was in love with her
creations since the first time I saw them. It was not able for me to
drive to france, so the best what could happened is a online workshop. For everyone who is in the same enthusiasm I recommend to start the online workshop.
I have learned how to sculpture a cat with simple and cheap materials, how to draw her face and eyes. Found different methods to work with mulberry paper so simple but very clever. Learned how to make a big big barock dress with kraftpaper and add beautiful details on the dress like roses, laces, lacing, collar…..
It helped me to see the work with paper as something very special if you don’t know how to use it and work with it. I saw her fantastic procedure and could have never found it out by my self. Thank you so much for available your methods.I liked everything. I made everything.
I loved to make the cat, her dress, the scepter, the cage, the crown, the chandelier and will make much more of my own ideas sometimes……. notably I liked the way she exactly explained step by step.
Don’t waste your time….. you must start the online workshop….you will love to be part of it and you really do not waste you money. This is a fantastic artist and you can learn so much of her. "

As for any art and craft workshop: patience, a thirst to learn and a good apron, are what you need to start this class.
You have the list of all the supplies we will use to start this class, right here. Most of the supplies are really inexpensive and easy to find in your area, in the supermarket, DIY shop and online and you probably already have most of them at home.
Of course if you have experimented some kind of painting, drawing, sculpting, crafting of any kind it's even better,
"This workshop is truly wonderful. Even if you don't know anything about paper sculpting, it explains very clearly every technique you'll need to create with paper. You'll create a beautiful character and fary tale objects that will transport you in a magical world.
Besides that, the videos are so entertainig and so pretty to look at that even just watching them gives you pleasure and joy, I'm very very happy to have enrolled. Laetitia is a special artist indeed and a very graceful teacher."

"When I first saw Merveilles en Papier’s image of a “Boot House” while searching the internet for fairy shoes, I fell in love with the beauty of this paper technique. I searched for more information and found the blog and all of the videos of Laetitia’s creations. I really wanted to learn how to create with this technique. My dream came true when the Princess Cat Workshop was announced.
I signed up immediately and started gathering all of my supplies. And the Magic began. I struggled with my first painting of the background papers but with my second attempt I succeeded in creating the beautiful paper that I used for the Princess’s costume.
I loved turning the plain white paper into beautiful designs and I painted and painted. I realized that by following Laetitia’s instructions step by step, I was learning the techniques that she used to create her masterpieces. The workshop is very extensive and well organized.
The videos work perfectly and every topic is covered in steps that are easy to follow. I had wanted to learn how to create with paper and the expertise that I gained was beyond my expectations ! Laetitia expertly guided us through all of the creative processes. She carefully watched our progress, giving us encouragement and suggestions as we traveled our path through the course and published our photos on our Princess Workshop Facebook Page.
And there was another amazing surprise. I met interesting and talented people from all over the world through our Facebook pages. All languages are translated so we were able to communicate with ease. The course has been a marvelous and magical experience that I never imagined when I saw that first image of the amazing “Boot House”.
And now I will enter this Enchanting World again in my next Course to create a crown and scepter for my wonderful Princess Cat.

"I was privileged to work with Laetitia as she developed her classes and i found her to be delightful and masterful in her techniques and even though her first language is french, her explanations are clear and completly understandable in English. I followed her first videos and written instructions and was able to create a cat that I am very proud of and I know that anyone can do the same with Laetitia's attention to detail and her gracious patience and willingness to assist in the process at every level.
Her creations are so magical and by taking her class I know that anyone can create a magical creature too. It was a wonderful and creative process and i loved it ."

Hi, I'm Laetitia Miéral, I've started to explore paper 15 years ago, and taught my Paper Magic in my own Kingdom here in Lyon, France, for 7 years, and met hundreds of inspiring students teaching classes just like this one. You can learn more about me , my background past exhibitions, jumping here. And now I invite you to take your apron, your scissors, have a seat you will learn my Paper Secrets !
When you purchase a course you’ll create an account that will grant you immediate access to all the videos andcontent in within, then you can decide to watch all the videos, organized in modules.at your own pace.
Of course ! I made all these courses for beginners, but they will also suit persons who have few skills. Most people who came in my workshop these past years had never draw a face, painted eyes, never sculpted anything, had no idea how to cut a dress, nor to sculpt Mulberry paper. Wwith help, few rules , patience, and a thirst to learn you can achieve anything and unlock the crazy and unexpected creativity within yourself ! And moreover I never saw anyone after my classes sad and wishing they never started, quite the opposite ! You will be surprised with what you can accompish .
It was a jam packed 2 days workshop in my kingdom, and was about 16 hours long. Perhaps you will need to watch some videos several times, need to try and experiment things on your own, you may need three full days,or several months, it depends on the free time you have !
