Virtual Folk School Class: Advanced Papercutting with Anna Brones

  • June 12, 2021
  • 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (PDT)
  • Virtual Event - National Nordic Museum - Seattle, WA


In this two-part workshop we will build on basic skills and focus more on composition, detail, and translating concepts into finished pieces. This is an interactive workshop where we will be spending a lot of hands on time working but with ample room for questions and discussion on approach, technique, and best methods. This workshop is designed to help you feel more confident in designing your own pieces and composing more complex and detailed scenes. This workshop is for you if you have already taken our Intro to Papercutting class, or have experimented with papercutting on your own. 

This is a two-part course, held over 2 different dates. The two dates for these workshops are: 

  • Saturday, June 5, 1–2:30pm Pacific Time
  • Saturday, June 12, 1–2:30pm Pacific Time


The materials you'll need for these classes are: 

  • A craft knife + extra blades (Anna recommends this one)
  • Self-healing cutting mat
  • Printer paper (for sketching and practicing cutting)
  • Heavier paper (for final papercuts). Anna mostly cuts in black paper, but you can choose what you would like. Anna recommends Canson Mi-Teintes 98 lb (this comes in a variety of colors too!)
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
