Arts Daily / Paper Cutting Workshop

Paper Cutting Workshop

OLLI at Clemson University presents Paper Cutting with Kay Raasch. Paper-cutting is the art of creating intricate designs and artwork using only paper and scissors, and has a tradition dating back to sixth century China. In German tradition, the art is called “scherenschnitte,” meaning “scissor cuts,” and is most closely associated with silhouettes and valentines. Participants will learn more about the history of paper-cutting, including layering, folding, and specific scherenschnitte designs and will make a bookmark, paper tag, notecard or picture to frame.. This workshop takes place March 9th and 16th, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Cheezem Education Center in Clemson. $30-$60.
