One of the most beautiful things about this art is that it is so easy to let the external world slip away and become completely present with the tools in front of you. It is a practice in mindfulness and the slowness it requires can be addictive.
If you would like take some time to sit still and create something beautiful then join me in one of my workshops and learn the delicate art of paper cutting.
In this three hour workshop you will discover the tools used and learn how to create a design suitable for paper cutting. We will discuss your ideas, look at negative and positive space and have a go at drawing and writing in reverse.
Once you have practiced with the knife you will create your own papercut on a beautiful sheet of acid free, light resistant black Canson Mi-Teintse paper.
No experience in drawing or paper cutting is necessary.
Workshops are held at the beautiful creative space Stackwood at 10 Stack Street, Fremantle. Head to https://www.stackwood.net.au/pages/information for more info on how to get there.
The environment is encouraging, fun and relaxed allowing you to work at your own pace, pop over to the cafe for a coffee or browse the stunning plant and concept store when your patience starts to dwindle.
Workshops are held every few months on a weekend morning or weekday evening and are advertised one-two months in advance.
