Workshop: Anna Brones – Paper-cutting Class

Artist and author of  Live Lagom: Balanced Living, the Swedish Way, Anna Brones joins us for a special papercutting workshop! While teaching the basics of papercutting Anna will  focus on the benefit of crafts/using your hands called “pyssel”.

Papercutting is an art that spans history and cultures, from simple silhouettes to intricate designs. In this class, you will learn the basics of papercutting and how to create your very own papercuts. We will cover everything from paper, finding inspiration and cutting techniques. You will leave class with at least one finished papercut ready for framing.

Sunday, April 8th 2:30 | $40; $20 for SCC members | register here. (space is limited; advanced registration encouraged)

Supply List (please purchase and bring to class):

-Self healing cutting mat
-Hobby knife + lots of extra blades (these are the blades Anna recommends) X-acto blades work fine too, but these work even better – every single paper-cut artist she knows uses them!
-Anna will bring paper, but in the event you’d like to do more projects at home she recommends a variety, including regular white printer paper, and then other colors, anywhere in the 60-98lb range.  Anna works predominantly in black (here is one she likes)
-A water bottle or beverage and snacks if you like.
