Welcome to the Guild of American Papercutters
Members of the Guild endeavor to learn, educate and promote original papercutting as an art form to, and among, artists, historians, supporters of the art, collectors, and the general public. The Guild encourages knowledge of traditions and acceptance of exploration through its publications, traveling exhibits, a biennial papercutting conference called "Collection", and member workshops and demonstrations.
Collection 2018 in Portland, OR is coming July 22-26 and GAP is grateful to Blick Art Materials for their sponsorship of this event. Blick Art Materials is one of the largest and oldest providers of art supplies in the United States. Their support for Collection will provide workshop supplies and discounts for attendees and GAP members.
