Learn the remarkable craft of papercutting using only an X-acto knife and your imagination. Basic skills are easy to learn; intricacy, good design and composition come with a little instruction and practice. Multi-ethnic/historical examples and contemporary uses of papercutting will be shown in the first class. In the following classes we will advance from simple to wherever your skill level will take you. Please bring a pencil, an X-acto knife and #11 blades, a 9 x 12 (or other size) self-healing plastic cutting mat (available at Joann, Michaels and Staples). Prepare to have fun!
