Paper Cutting Workshop
March 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - April 2, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
We’re turning the Museum into an art studio for this special four-evening workshop! Deborah Ugoretz, whose work is currently on exhibition at the Museum, will lead this four-session exploration of the art form she has mastered: papercutting. Participants will learn the origins and history of this centuries-old art form, and will learn the techniques needed to produce a work of their own. The act of creating is energizing and confidence building. Papercut art is a time-honored form that allows rituals to become more meaningful and heartfelt. By the end of this interactive class, participants will have made their own cut-paper masterpieces.
Class meets on Tuesdays – March 12, March 19, March 26, and April 2.
$160 for four evening sessions. Recommended for ages 15 and older. Price includes penknife and all other needed art materials.
