A quick one-hour intro to my paper-cutting work and a fun project you can do with me. Inspired by Kelly Link's Pretty Monsters, this is part of BIG READ. I'm one of several artists sharing during this program through the Chautauqua/Cattaraugus Library System. (free)  Click here to register. 

Note: You do not have to have read Pretty Monsters to enjoy the workshop, but I loved the book—they are fun spooky short stories perfect for "Night Studio" season!

workshop: Intro to Cut Paper Sculpture 

Four classes online through Zoom.

Made possible through a grant from NY State and a patron of

the Patterson Library/ Octagon Gallery, Westfield, NY 

The overall objective of the workshop is to show paper cutting’s flexibility and sometimes unexpected range for personal expression. Beginning with a simple feather, students will be guided through the basic techniques Wendy uses making hand-cut paper sculptures. During Episode 1 students earn cutting, shaping, texturing the paper while sharpening powers of observation. A second sculpture of a snowy owl (Episodes 2-3) is demonstrated from start to finish. The fourth and final episode wraps up the owl project and how to present your work and includes a bonus "cut paper leaf" tutorial.

Original dates 9/22,24,28 and 10/1/2020

If you would like to download the pdf and try out papercutting, I have included the patterns and materials list. Zoom video of the classes available upon request.
