Date: Tuesday, September 24, 2021
Time: 9:30-11:00 AM Pacific Time/12:30-2:00 PM Eastern Time/5:30-7:00 PM London Time

Sarah Dennis joins us from her London-based studio to share her knowledge of the centuries-old art form of paper cutting and to demonstrate how she creates her ornate show-stopping work. The paper cut’s subtractive drawing process allows the remaining paper to appear as dynamic lines and shapes. Sarah will share some of the techniques and tips you need to know before embarking on your own artistic journey into paper cutting.

Sarah Dennis is a British paper artist and illustrator whose work combines traditional paper-cutting techniques with collage. Sarah has worked with a range of clients including BBC Four, Tatler, The Guardian and Gosh Arts.
