Introduction To Paper Cutting

About this workshop

The practice of cut-paper illustrations originated in 4th Century China with the invention of paper and is a tradition common to cultures the world over.

Learn the art of traditional layered cut-paper illustrations with visual artist Ellen Sørensen.

In this 1.5-day workshop, you will create a scene from a series of cut paper panels which will be layered and mounted in a light box.

On the first half-day, you will learn to handle the scalpel to effectively cut watercolour-weight paper

On the second full day, you will create your own designs and build a light box display.

This workshop will cover composition, layering, framing and working in miniature as well as how to get the best out of your subject matter when working with light.

At the end of the workshop, you will take your finished artwork home ready to be put on display.
