Students will learn the technique from first a simple butterfly template provided based on Mexican folk art, and for the second meeting, a very simplified version of the Swiss squirrel design pictured. How to hold the scissors, how to hold the paper as you go, and the cutting technique will be demonstrated.
- Two templates (to be postal mailed possibly)
- Black paper (3 or 4 sheets 9 x 12” or 8.5 x 11”)
Here is a link for the nice silhouette paper which has a good deep black color:
matte finish, 25 sheets, 9 x 12, $13.74
- Scissors, curved embroidery ones are best but any smallish sharp-pointed ones will do. Amazon link:
- One white colored pencil
- (optional) X-acto knife, a couple extra #11 blades, and a ‘self-healing cutting mat’
This is an adult class for ages 17 and up.
