Loïs Cordelia will lead a paper-cutting workshop at Tindalls, Colchester, on Monday 4th April 2016, demonstrating how to achieve a beautiful paper-cut image, using Swann Morton scalpels.
Paper-cutting is not as difficult or scary as it looks! The results can be meticulously detailed and intricate, or bold and minimalistic. Using a Swann-Morton scalpel and cutting mat, Lois will demonstrate step-by-step the very simple basic techniques of how to create an effective cut-paper design. Feel free to bring some of your own visual references, if you wish, or come along on the day and be inspired by a wide range of cut-paper styles, motifs, designs, patterns and imagery from around the globe. This workshop is perfect for complete beginners, as for those who may 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, stencilling, and so on.
