4 hour workshop
Isla Simpson is a London based Designer and Illustrator. Her feminine aesthetic, nostalgically references chintzy English country houses of the 1980s, with a dash of whimsical humour.
Graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2002 after studying textile design, Isla went on to design handbags and leather goods for fifteen years for clients such as Aspinals of London, Anya Hindmarch and Whistles. Launching her own studio in 2017, she now designs her line of stationery, home accessories and original artwork. As well as working on bespoke illustration commissions.
Outline of the workshop To begin Isla will give a brief introduction to the long history of paper cutting from 17th century Mary Delany to the present day and her own influences; she will then spend time giving a demonstration of the main techniques.
Students will follow a one of Isla’s own designs and use materials specially prepared for the workshop to ensure everyone will leave with their own beautiful Paper Cut Picture.
