Papercutting Workshops-MAKE in Portsmouth
If you fancy learning to paper cut why not come along to one of my paper cutting workshops at MAKE in Portsmouth, all of which have been newly revamped for Autumn Term 2019!
The session begins with an introduction to the mindful art of paper cutting as I teach you to paper cut the different techniques on a beginners sheet so that you feel comfortable with a scalpel.
My venue MAKE was nominated in the category of 'local food hero' in The Guardian Food Awards in 2019 , which is why after a break of tea and home made scones-with jam and cream-from the cafe, you will spend the rest of the session cutting a template of your choice. You can pick your template by scrolling through the images and choosing a letter between A to L which you can specify underneath your contact information. You don't need to have any drawing skills to attend this workshop, so you can just relax into learning a new craft.
All equipment and refreshments -tea/coffee/water and scones with jam and cream served on vintage tablewear- are provided for the duration of the session so you don't need to bring anything but yourself -and a pair of glasses if you need them!
Should you wish to buy a kit to take home with you for an additional £12, just select 'Workshop and Kit' at the checkout. Each kit will contain a cutting mat, scalpel, five blades, full beginners instructions, three projects and backing papers. I will also have these available to purchase at the workshop afterwards should paper cutting be the craft for you!
I am hopeful that this introduction will then give you the confidence to go home with your basic materials and to keep having a go, but to carry on the momentum you will also be granted access to the exclusive 'Beginners Papercutters' FB group which shares tips and inspiration from 150 + other people who have attended one of courses in Portsmouth and Godalming.
