Beginners' Paper-Cutting Workshop, Colchester, Sat 29th April 2017
Welcome to the magical world of paper-cutting.
We begin with a richly illustrated 'world tour' of paper-cutting from China, through Europe, to Mexico. Using a surgical scalpel, Lois Cordelia will then demonstrate the basic techniques of knife paper-cutting before introducing a range of templates, with an optional Spring theme.
Feel free to bring some of your own references, or come along on the day and be inspired by cut-paper motifs, designs and imagery from around the globe. This workshop is ideal for beginners, as for those who have dabbled in paper-cutting and want some guidance. Paper-cutting can be a beautiful addition to other craft activities, including scrap-booking, card making and stencilling.
To book places: please contact Tindalls Colchester.
