Creative Paper Cutting (1 day) in the Peak District
Contact course provider
About the Course
Paper cutting is THE craft of the moment! It is everywhere; shop displays, book covers and even crockery. It has a long and rich history all over the world, from Mexico to China, from Matisse to Rob Ryan. Join us for this 1-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.

Everything about this two day course was a joy!
Peter and Alison are warm and welcoming hosts at Zantium Studios, situated in beautiful rolling countryside of the Derbyshire Dales, serving a delicious home-cooked lunch, and afternoon tea with homemade cake.
The paper cutting course was fantastic! Christine is an inspiring and encouraging teacher, guiding us through each stage and sharing her vast knowledge generously. Zantium take only small groups, ensuring lots of individual attention and support.
I cannot recommend Zantium Studios, or Christine Green highly enough!
