Paper-cutting Demos, Holywells Park, 18th and 19th July 2015
Loïs Cordelia and her mother Erika Bülow-Osborne will jointly perform live paper-cutting demos, Loïs with a surgical scalpel, and Erika using tiny Scherenschnitt scissors, as part of the grand re-opening and re-launch of Holywells Park Visitors' Centre, on Saturday 18th (official re-opening day) and Sunday 19th July, 2015, 12 noon - 5.00 pm. The paper-cut demonstrations will accompany a display in the elegant and beautifully restored Conservatory, of the exquisite scissor-cut Valentines of Elizabeth Cobbold (née Knipe, 1764–1824), who lived at Holywells 200 years ago. Other events on Saturday 18th include speeches to mark the re-launch, Adrian Howlett's not-to-be-missed "Holywells Magical History Tour", and musical performances by a string quartet, a choir and a jazz band. Anthony Cobbold, keeper of the Cobbold Family History Trust, and Clive Hodges, writer in residence for the CFHT, will both be on hand to answer questions about the history of Holywells. Clive will be signing copies of his new book, ‘Holywells, Home of the Cobbolds’ which is to be launched on opening day.
