Modern artists are increasingly using a knife as a brush turning a simple sheet of paper, into hard-edge, dramatic, black and white images.
Anna, an enthusiastic paper cutter herself, will show you how to create striking designs and art works from this time-honoured practice while simultaneously strengthening your compositional sensitivity in perceiving positive and negative spaces.
Participants will create their own templates using both flat and folded paper cutting techniques or may experiment with creating works from those provided.
