Introduction to creative paper cutting

Paper Cutting


The ancient art of paper cutting is enjoying a resurgence of interest and this course offers you the chance to master the basics and give you confidence to create designs unique to you.

You will explore designing with hand drawn lettering and combining typography and imagery. Learn how to use a scalpel safely, how to design for successful paper cutting and how to present your finished work.

Christine will bring a wide variety of resources to inspire you including Haitian metal work, Polish, Mexican and Swiss examples of paper cuts and lots of examples of her own and her students’ work.

You will start with some simple cutting exercises to learn how to use the scalpel to best effect, move on to cutting out a more challenging design; design a monogram using your initials; and then design and cut a more complex piece.

All resource sheets, equipment and materials will be provided by Christine, cost £5
