Beginner's Papercutting at Swallows & Artisans

Beginner's Papercutting at Swallows & Artisans


At this workshop you will receive personalised tutoring as part of a small group from papercutting artist Melissa Holmes, who has more than six years' experience in this creative method. You will be taught the basics of papercutting, including scalpel technique, practising shapes, lines and curves, and understanding simple design techniques. You’ll then have the opportunity to move on to cutting a pre-designed template of your choice – choose from flowers, birds or perhaps a quote piece – so that you’ll go home with at least one completed papercut, ready for you to frame at home. The workshop will also cover more advanced techniques such as colour infills and designing your own templates. No previous experience is needed and no drawing skill is required – just a willingness to learn and try something new!
