This presentation will explore the art of papercutting – its history, techniques, and styles. From its origins in China shortly after the invention of paper, papercutting spread to the rest of the world along with the craft of papermaking. Each culture developed its own style and technique for the art so that today we have an amazing array of very different artistic approaches to what is basically a very simple technique. Andrea will also discuss current styles and techniques, and present examples of current papercut art from a variety of well-known artists.
