About the Course
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'll create a unique 3 dimensional card that could be a birthday, anniversary or abstract design - it's up to you. If you have done Christine's paper cutting courses before and produced a flat panel, this is the perfect opportunity to develop your ideas. If you haven't attended a course before, don't panic, you'll soon get up to speed! Great fun and highly rewarding and suitable for a wide range of creative abilities including the complete beginner. Great fun and just a little addictive!
