ONLINE: Virtual Class: Introduction to Papercutting with Anna Brones
2 October, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Papercutting is an art that spans history and cultures, from simple silhouettes to intricate designs. Join artist Anna Brones to learn the basics of papercutting and how to create your very own papercuts.
In this three-part workshop, we will cover everything from paper, cutting techniques, composition, and design inspiration. We will take inspiration from our beautiful Pacific Northwest surroundings, as well as the season, and you will develop the skills to design and complete your own papercut illustration.
This is a three-part course, held over 3 different dates. The three dates for these workshops are:
Saturday, October 2, 11am-12pm Pacific Time
Saturday, October 9, 11am-12pm Pacific Time
Saturday, October 16, 11am-12pm Pacific Time
The materials you’ll need for these classes are:
- A craft knife + extra blades (Anna recommends this one)
- Self-healing cutting mat
- Printer paper (for sketching and practicing cutting)
- Heavier paper (for final papercuts). Anna mostly cuts in black paper, but you can choose what you would like. Anna recommends Canson Mi-Teintes 98 lb (this comes in a variety of colors too!)
Please email Education and Interpretation Coordinator Kate Dugdale if you have questions or need assistance.
This virtual, three-part class will take place on Zoom. You will receive log in information via email.
