Workshop: Introduction to Decorative Paper Cutting
Platetone is pleased to be hosting Kelli Hix’s upcoming workshop, which will give you a hands on introduction to the intriguing art of Paper Cutting.
Paper Cutting is a fine art, a folk art, and a commercial art form with long traditions in almost every culture across the globe. In this workshop, you will learn the basic techniques for turning a piece of paper into a two-dimensional sculpture using nothing more than an exacto knife and cutting mat.
Attendees will learn the basics of making paper cut art, including how to make additive and subtractive cuts, and how to make sure that your design contains continuous lines which hold it together. We’ll also cover options for turning your works into greeting cards, screenprints, bookmarks, and hanging art. No experience or drawing skills necessary.
Kelli Hix is a self-taught paper-cut artist, filmmaker, and visual artist living and working in Nashville, TN. Her work has been shown in Nashville at the 444 Gallery and the Belcourt Theatre. She is a regular vendor at markets including Porter Flea, and her company, Odilon Arts, sells her paper cuts and silkscreened goods.
