Cobbold heritage paper-cut demonstration, Ipswich, April 2011
Silhouette Paper-cut Demonstration
by Lois Cordelia (scalpel) and Erika Bulow-Osborne (scissors)
Lois Cordelia and her mother Erika demonstrated the techniques of silhouette paper-cut art, respectively using scalpel and scissors at the Reg Driver Visitor Centre, Christchurch Park, Ipswich IP4 2BX, Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th April, 10.00am-4.30pm (3.30pm on Sunday).
The live folk-art demonstration was part of the inaugural weekend for a new 2 year historical display to mark the 250th anniversary (in 2012) of the birth of Ipswich legend Margaret Catchpole, as well as to celebrate the legacy of the local Cobbold dynasty.
The silhouette paper-cut and Scherenschnitt demonstration evoked in particular the exquisite contributions to this genre by Elizabeth Cobbold (née Knipe, 1764–1824). On display were two volumes of Elizabeth Cobbold's scissor-cut paper Valentines, created 200 years ago.
