Paper-Cutting Workshops led by artist Lois Cordelia, at Tindalls, Newmarket
*** Workshops run from 10.00 - 16.00. Cost: £35. All materials included. ***
Welcome to the magical world of paper-cutting.
To set our workshop in context, we begin with a richly illustrated 'world tour' of paper-cutting traditions from China and Japan, through Europe, to Mexico. Using a surgical scalpel, Lois will then demonstrate the basic techniques of knife paper-cutting before introducing a range of templates. Optional themes include festive, floral, butterflies, lettering, Halloween, and so on. We will focus on the use of a scalpel, though other cutting tools will also be available to experiment with, including scissors, pattern shears, hole punches, piercing tools, and so on.
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 art and craft activities, including screen-printing, embroidery, collage, scrap-booking, card making and stencilling.
Cost: £35 per workshop.
