Lois Cordelia will demonstrate her intricate paper-cutting techniques using a Swann-Morton scalpel at Tindalls, Colchester, on Saturday 15th April 2017 with a life-affirming theme of Spring.

She welcomes a live audience while she works, so don't be shy - come along and watch work in progress unfolding before your eyes, ask questions, and be inspired to have a go yourself!

Scalpel paper-cut

This design is the inspiration for Marion Hartmann's German poem, "Blaue Blume" ("Blue Flower", August 2015, copyright Marion Hartmann; reproduced with kind permission from the author):

Blaue Blume

Blaue Blume des Vergessens,
weiter Himmel spiegelt sich,
endlos ferne Meeresflächen,
auch das Eis im Mondenlicht!

Blauer Engel, Deine Flügel,
sind aus Poesie gewoben,
Du umgarnst des Künstlers Hände,
zu Ehren Deines Schöpfers droben.

Nur er vermag Dich festzuhalten,
gebannter Augenblick der Zeit,
aus einem kurzen Stirb und Werde,
entsteht ein Bild der Ewigkeit.

Nur er vermag Dich zu erheben,
im Glanze seiner Seelenkraft,
mit der er aus profanem Leben,
ein wahrhaft Göttliches erschafft!

(Marion Hartmann/ künstlerisches Werk: Lois Cordelia)
