Introduction to Creative Papercutting with Christine Green
Thursday 16th April: 10am - 4pm
In case you haven't noticed, paper cutting is THE craft of the moment! It is everywhere; shop displays, book covers and even crockery. Of course it's actually been around for a very long time and has a long and rich history all over the world, from Mexico to China (via Poland), from Matisse to Rob Ryan (via Lotte Reiniger!).
Join Christine for this wonderful day workshop and master the basics of this highly rewarding, low cost craft.
Be inspired by Polish paper cuts, Haitian metal cut outs and wooden fret work; examples of these and more will be provided to fire your imagination. Get to grips with decorative lettering and learn to design specifically for paper cutting. Christine will teach you how to wield a scalpel safely, accurately and creatively. Perfect as personalised gifts, greetings cards and framed artworks, you will produce several pieces to take home.
Open to both beginners and those with experience.
You will get to grips with using lettering and simple imagery creatively and produce a Paper Cut panel unique to you. Great fun and just a little addictive!
