Upcoming Online Workshops
Come explore how letters and words can fit into and shape your papercut artwork!
A close look at the art and design of lettering and writing—from historical styles and fonts, to the choices we make as designers to use particular shapes and rhythms in our texts. Materials: paper, pencil, a straightedge, cutting tools, and one very short (3 or fewer words), one medium-sized (4-10 words) or longer text to this Zoom workshop. Handouts of guides, alphabets, and design ideas that I use in the workshop will be distributed by email or (if you prefer) via the real (snail) mail!
Date: Sunday, November 1, 2020 (please register early!). Time: 1-3pm Eastern US; 10am-12pm Pacific; 6-8pm UK; 7-9pm Europe.
$35/ $29.75 (with member discount code GAP15).
Two classes with Cindy Stinson Chennell for the price of one! Take both or take one. They stand alone.
On NOV 22 learn how to make birdhouse and snowman ornaments that can hang or be self standing. The first 15 people to sign up by November 13 will get a snowman kit and instructions in USPS mail. A template for both will also be sent via email to everyone so if you do not get a kit, you can still prep for the class ahead of time. Cindy is on the west coast, so sign up early to get your kit in time.
On DEC 6 learn how to make woven heart basket and paper orb ornaments.
Materials: your choice of paper (card stock to no more than 140lb), knife and scissors, white glue, self healing mat, ruler with a straight edge, toothpick or brush to use with the glue. It is also helpful to have a printed 1/4″ grid which Cindy hopes to send electronically, so you can print it.
Price for one or both classes $35/ $29.75 (with member discount code GAP15). (Snowman kit included in price of the class for the first 15 people to register)
Dates: Sunday, November 22, and Sunday, December 6, 2020. Time: 4-6pm Eastern Standard Time; 1-3pm Pacific; 9-11pm UK; 10pm-midnight Europe.
Ex Libris Exhibit of Papercut Bookplates at GAP Museum
Recently, Guild members contributed their papercut artwork to the current exhibit at GAP’s National Museum in Somerset, PA, curated by Rebecca Raupach. There are plans afoot now to send it around also as a traveling show, hosted by GAP members around the country. If you think your area could host a showing at a specific place you have in mind, please let us know: Send mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
