Are you looking to explore your artistic side and develop a new practical skill?

Then papercutting is for you.

This workshop is ideal for beginners who are interested in learning the basics of papercutting. Papercutting is a fast growing trend and a great way of creating designs to brighten up your home, create decorations for special occasions such as Christmas and Weddings, or make personal gifts for friends and family.

During this three hour workshop you will learn how to use a scalpol knife to cut intricate designs from existing templates. You will learn various techniques which Silvina will talk you through step by step, and will be encouraged to experiment with colours and textures using a selection of papers to create your piece. You will create your own artwork which you can then take home with you. Your work can then be mounted into a frame and given as a present, or displayed in your own home. You will also learn how to create your own designs for future artworks.

All materials will be provided and you will get to go home with one small but wonderful artwork ready to frame and hang on your wall. Classes are limited to 10 spaces so please be quick if you would like to book.

An absolutely fabulous workshop with the multitalented Silvina. We had a choice of a cityscape of beech scene. She took us through the process of cutting the components, creating the background and layering the images in a 3-D shadow box

Silvina was excellent, the setting was lovely, and I got to spend a morning creating a beautiful piece of art. She also brought along delicious cakes and tea, and was well prepared for any mistakes we were all making. Highly recommended!

A fantastic afternoon spent with Silvina cutting paper shapes and learning how to mount them in a 'shadow box.' Would love to do more in due course!

Silvina taught us how to cut beautiful botanical shapes out to make our own pieces of botanical art. The classes were very well prepared for, Silvina was friendly and a great teacher and we were all very proud of our work at the end. The class was held in the Greenhouse conservatory at Emmaus Brighton which is the perfect location for crafting. We would highly recommend Silvina as a teacher and look forward to more of her classes in the future.

Silvia is a wonderful teacher who is a master at what she does. With her guidance I made a beautiful 2D paper picture of plants which hangs on my wall with pride. Silvina brings templates and can help you make bespoke designs too. Her classes are relaxed and fun and there is tea and cake! Perfect way to spend some time!
