Paper Cutting Hats, Masks and Scarves
July 15 - July 16
July 15-16, Saturday & Sunday, 10am-4pm
During this paper cutting workshop, participants will create wearable papercuts in form of hats, masks, scarves and more. Experimenting with dimensionality and volume, we will explore the numerous ways to use paper cutting to tell a story in unusual shapes. Participants will learn basic techniques to cut paper, stencils and pop-ups. Cutting different papers and experimenting with scale, we will keep an open mind, try other materials and explore new territories of creativity. No experience necessary.
