Intro to Papercutting
We’ll look at highlights of paper cutting as a folk tradition and a contemporary art. Jenny will demonstrate scissoring and craft knife skills for intricate cutting as well as cover basic design considerations that you’ll put to use creating your own original paper cuttings with instructor support. All materials and tools are provided for class use.
