More about the session:

Paper cutting and folding has been an art medium seen around the world for centuries, including: Origami - “folded paper” from China; Kiri-e - “cut picture” from Japan;  Scherenschnitte - “scissor cuts”, from Scandinavia; Papel Picado - “perforated paper” from Mexico and others.

This calligraphy session will be an introduction to cut paper as art, and as an element to integrate into your calligraphy. We will explore pop-up cards and other paper folding and cutting techniques.
