Karen Shain Schloss is teaching a Papercutting Class at Cheltenham Adult School in Wyncote PA, in March! Four Monday nights, the 2, 9, 16, and 23rd, 2020 (7:30-9:00 pm). The class is open to any skill level; it starts with an overview of multicultural traditions, ancient to contemporary.

It’s amazing what you can do with a piece of paper and an X-acto knife. Bring your creative spirit and be thrilled with the results learned through professional instruction and freedom of expression! Bring an X-acto knife and #11 blades, a self-healing plastic cutting mat and a pencil.

The class is specifically knife- cutting (X-Acto). For more information, see http://cheltenhamtownshipadultschool.org215-887-1720
