New Course - Clear Cut: Beginners Paper Cutting

Since Rob Ryan won our hearts with his romantic, intricate creations we've been swooning over the art of paper cutting. Check out some serious eye candy here and whet your appetite with a quick run down of our favourite inspirational artists:
Rob Ryan, Grandaddy of modern paper cutting and star crossed lovers. His work moves me to tears!

Manchester-based Helen Musselwhite is surely the undisputed Queen of paper cuttery. Take a look at her website and be COMPLETELY STUNNED!
We came across the work of Helen Rees recently, at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. Her work often reflects the Welsh landscape where she lives but she also does portraits!

The newest addition to our team of craftacular tutors is Jess Panesar who makes bespoke, personalised paper cuts to order. Check out her work!
Now you can literally take a leaf out of Jess's book: grab a scalpel and a slice of the action! We're thrilled to be launching our first paper cutting course - CLEAR CUT: BEGINNERS PAPER CUTTING - on Sunday 30 November. It's a snip at £32.50, so there's no reason not to delve into this wonderful art form. For booking and further details click here.

We've also got tonnes of papery goodness over on our Pinterest boards. So after you've dipped your toe in the water under Jess's expert tuition, you can start making your original hand cut Christmas cards or personalised art works. There's so much inspiration our there, plus templates and free tutorials to keep your hand sure and steady.

We look forward to seeing your creations!
