Photos from paper cut workshop with Lorraine Bubar

Papercut artist Lorraine Bubar shared her knowledge – and a few trade secrets – with an eager group gathered at the Craft in America Center for a workshop on March 21st. Lorraine first gave a brief overview of the history and practice of papercutting, including stories of different techniques from China, Japan and Poland, where they cut the most delicate of patterns using sheep shears! For the next two hours, each workshop participant created a unique piece, learning to choose and layer colors and encouraged to be surprised by the shapes and curls that can be created unexpectedly.
