During this two-hour workshop, participants will discover the multiple facets of papercutting by making their own samples of different techniques. Learning basic principles of designing with full and empty shapes, each student will explore adapting pictures they collected to papercutting. Tips and tricks will be shared. We will start the class with a presentation of the art of papercutting, then we will make one exercise outlining what papercutting is and how it can be used. Then each participant will choose an image to adapt to papercutting. It can be a digital copy of a photograph. Other ways to use papercutting with colors, dimensionally and theatrically will be discussed. Tips, tricks and resources will be provided.
