Join Aimee Richards @missbespokepapercuts and seller via notonthehighstreet on in our cosy Tudor Lounge at Wattle & Daub for a beginners paper cutting Christmas workshop. The session will begin with a cup of calmness and an introduction to the mindful art of paper cutting before moving onto a template sheet where you will begin to learn the different techniques, moving from easy shapes to more complicated patterns. After an afternoon tea and cake break, you will spend the rest of the session cutting a template specifically selected for the theme of the session. As well as a full kit to take away, you will also have another template to take home to carry on with both of which you can keep to frame or gift to a friend. You don’t need to have any drawing skills to attend this workshop as you will be provided with two beautiful frame-filling templates.
The maximum number of people per session is six and all material are provided – Scalpel, spare pack of blades, a cutting mat and templates-and yours to keep and take home with you as well as refreshments and cake.
The cost of the workshop is £45. To book click here
