About the Course
If you fancy learning to paper cut why not come along to one of my paper cutting workshops at Wattle and Daub in Godalming, all of which have been newly revamped for the Autumn Term!
The session begins with an introduction to the mindful art of paper cutting as I teach you to paper cut the different techniques on a beginners sheet so that you feel comfortable with a scalpel.
After a tea and cake break you will spend the rest of the session cutting a template of your choice, which I send to you to select upon email confirmation. You don't need to have any drawing skills to attend this workshop, so you can just relax into learning a new craft.
All equipment and refreshments -tea/coffee/drink and cake- are provided for the duration of the session so you don't need to bring anything but yourself -and a pair of glasses if you need them!
I am hopeful that this introduction will then give you the confidence to go home with the knowledge of your techniques and to keep having a go, but to carry on the momentum you will also be granted access to the exclusive 'Beginners Papercutters' FB group which shares tips and inspiration from 150 + other people who have attended one of courses in Portsmouth and Godalming.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
All equipment and refreshments -tea/coffee/drink and cake are provided for the duration of the session, so you don't need to bring anything but yourself - and a pair of glasses if you need them! Kits are available to buy additionally.
I had the best morning at Aimee's paper cutting workshop. It was fun, interesting, therapeutic and productive all at the same time. I can't wait to take part in another one again soon!

A very enjoyable way to spend a morning and learn a new skill. Aimee was very passionate and enthusiastic about her craft. We learnt how to cut lines and curves before advancing onto our templates. We were shown examples of work by paper cutting artists to see what is possible - some amazing work and creativity. I was also interested in making my own template and Aimee kindly gave me the basic introduction to that, although this is really another full course in its own right. The course was at just the right level for a beginner and we had the chance to complete our first piece. A great way to learn something new in lovely surroundings.

This is by far the best course I have been on for a long while . The standard of the teaching was excellent and the course notes were clear and comprehensive. We were also given an equipment pack which I was impressed with. I would recommend wholeheartedly ! I had a lovely time.

Aimee was brilliant - teaching us techniques and letting us loose into the world of paper cutting. We came away with a beautiful Xmas card and lots of goodies. Lovely morning with great cake - it really allows you to switch off from the everyday and just concentrate on something really fun. Would highly recommend!

Went with a friend for her birthday treat, both complete newbies to papercutting and the morning whizzed by! Aimee is great fun and her enthusiasm is very inspiring. Enjoyed trying something new
- our concentration levels were very high indeed!, but it was also a very sociable morning and we appreciated being able to continue at home with the materials provided.

Attended this course at Godalming with a friend, neither of us had done any paper cutting before. Lovely way to spend a Sunday morning - learning a new skill, having a chat plus tea and cake. Great instruction and enthusiasm from Aimee . Would definitely recommend
