Virtual Workshop – Intro to Contemporary Papercutting
May 13, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm$20
Want to get started on the art of contemporary paper cutting? Join us for an online workshop to learn the basics of Contemporary Paper cutting with artist Jessica Alpern Brown!
Date: Wednesday, May 13
Time: 12:30 – 2:00 PM (EST)
Location: The comfort of your own home through Zoom
You will learn everything you need to begin making cut paper artwork. This workshop will begin with the tools and materials needed for paper cutting, from traditional to the unexpected. The workshop will culminate in preparing and cutting a template of the instructor’s design while we discuss proper techniques. You will finish this virtual workshop with a completed cut paper project.
Materials: The only thing you really need is your craft knife, blades, and a surface to cut on. If you don’t have a cutting mat, cardboard or newspaper is a fine substitute. You’ll just need to change it out between projects. We can cut any kind of paper from proper archival stock, pages from the penny saver, or even an empty potato chip bag. The same goes for templates. A sharpie is all you need to draw your own, or you can cut out the design from a magazine.
Cancellations and Refunds: Workshop cancellations are decided three business days before the start date. If workshops must be cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, the entire class fee will be refunded by check, to your credit card, or Contemporary Craft account for future workshops.
