Creative Paper Cutting and Collage Workshop with Vanessa Stone
31 August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for a creative workshop by Vanessa Stone, whose artwork is currently on display in the Arches Gallery, part of the upstairs Terrace Gallery. We’ll be getting inspired by local places close to the museum.
What Vanessa says about her workshops…
“I really enjoy running workshops for adults as I can share techniques and show people the wonderful art of papercutting! It’s really great to inspire others to make and create their own original works of art. Papercutting and collage is very absorbing. It’s sort of meditative as you get in the cutting away zone as you work and develop a piece; its great for mindfulness and being in the moment. It’s also very accessible as you need a small amount of equipment to get started and can get amazing results whatever your ability.”
About Vanessa Stone…
Vanessa Stone is a cut paper and collage artist who uses bold colours and pared down compositions that are primarily inspired by English countryside and townscapes. All Vanessa’s collages are cut by hand using a scalpel.
Her exhibition, currently on show in our Arches Gallery, of nine collages is a personal response to places that resonate strongly with her experience of living in Letchworth for many years. They are pieces which evoke memories of childhood play, family walks and views of places on the way home from the school run – as well as works which celebrate the amazing architecture of the area.
For ages 16+
