Event Info

This virtual workshop takes place on Thursday, October 21 from 3–5pm ET

About the Workshop:

In this two-hour online workshop for all experience levels, artist and CBA instructor Béatrice Coron teaches students to design and cut a paper wall-hanging of seasonal flora.

To help students generate ideas, Coron will show examples of different design options. Then she’ll teach basic paper-cutting techniques like how to adapt an image through paper cutting. By the end of the class, each student will have made their own large-scale botanical cut-out!

Coron also will share paper-cutting tips, tricks, and resources so that students can continue to work on more paper-cutting projects after the class.

Class size is limited to ensure an optimal student-to-teacher ratio. Register now before the remaining spots fill up!
