This class will take place on:
- Tues, Feb 23rd, 10:00am–12:00pm ET
In this intense workshop of serious fun, we will explore unique methods of creating paper cuts that can be worn. Students will design compositions and discover papercutting skills to make paper dimensional with basic pop-up and paper-sculpture techniques. Adaptation to other materials, such as glass or metal are discussed. Tips, tricks and resources will be provided. All levels of experience are welcome.
This class is meant to inspire with lecture and examples. Hands on example are shown and can be finalized after the class.

About the Instructor
I collect many stories. Born and raised in France, I was a city dweller, a shepherdess and truck driver among others, then I worked in tourism and lived in Egypt, China, Mexico. I enjoy stories and working with my hands. That’s why settling as an artist in New York City, I started exploring visual storytelling with the techniques of papercutting. I draw with a blade to create empty and full shapes in artist books that cast shadows. Playing with shapes from 2D to 3D each project follows its own path. For public art I translate my hand-cut artwork in metal, glass or stone. I am looking for an artist community to connect with other artist around common interests.
