Papermaking spread from China to the Islamic world by the 8th century. By the 11th century it had made its way throughout Europe. Each culture along that path developed its own unique style of papercutting using scissors, knives, hammers and more. Now considered a folk-art medium, papercutting is experiencing a renaissance with more people than ever cutting paper to reflect modern times. In this workshop you’ll learn the basic techniques of knife cutting, use them to cut your own cityscape from a provided photo, and learn how to work from your own photos in the future.
Here are the supplies you will need:
People are welcome to email Rosa if they have questions about supplies. She's all for using what you already have and is happy to check in with folks about whether or not something is an adequate substitute. You can reach Rosa at email@example.com.
