Papercutting Basics with Béatrice Corón
October 20 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm UTC+0
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. The second exercise will be a study to adapt any image to papercutting. For the third exercise, we will use origami papers to design a four color mini-book.
Materials to bring:
– x-acto knife, extra blades; cutting mat; origami papers; tracing paper (or transparent paper such as parchment or freezer paper); a few sheets of copy/printer paper; glue; stapler; scotch tape; photocopy of image you want to adapt to papercutting
optional: letter size papers (can be from recycling); papers of larger format; old magazines; plastic bags; used Tyvek envelopes, such as FEDEX, UPS or USPS packaging; art papers
