Workshop: The Art of Cut Paper - Scherenschnitte

July 20, 2017       10:00 AM - 02:00 PM
Location: Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden
Join cut-paper artist Pamela Dalton for a fun, hands-on workshop on the art of Scherenschnitte (cut paper). Learn simple techniques and practice making small, beautiful images in paper. Students will create multiple Scherenschnitte, executed in the style of the Pennsylvania German tradition and drawing on farming and gardening themes from the 19th century. The instructor will also share paper cutting from a variety of cultures and historic periods. Bring a bag lunch.

Supply List
•Scissors: any pair that is sharp and comfortable to use.
•Exacto knife and package of #11 blades (a package of 5 is probably adequate for the day)
•Self-sealing, 8 x 10 plastic cutting mat. Students may bring larger mats. (preference is translucent grey to opaque black or green.) Miller's in Pittsfield carries a nice variety. An 8X10 mat is relatively inexpensive; Alvin is a good brand.
•Pencil
•Eraser
•Straight edge
•Small bottle of Elmer's glue

A $10 MATERIALS FEE, PAID TO THE INSTRUCTOR, WILL COVER THE REMAINING MATERIALS NEEDED FOR THIS WORKSHOP.
