14.7.31The Art of Paper CuttingJoin cut-paper artist Pamela Dalton for a fun, hands-on workshop on the art of Scherenschnitte (cut paper). Learn simple techniques and practice making small, beautiful images in paper. Students will create multiple Scherenschnitte, executed in the style of the Pennsylvania German tradition. The instructor will also share paper cutting from a variety of cultures and historic periods.

Artist Pamela Dalton’s Scherenschnitte have delighted collectors worldwide for almost 25 years. Her work is created in the tradition of early American paper cutting popular in the Pennsylvania Dutch regions of this country in the early 19th century. Dalton’s original designs are influenced by popular historical themes: patriotism, biblical and religious motifs and scenes from rural life. Each piece is sketched freehand by the artist and then cut by hand, so no two are exactly alike. Each work is cut from a single piece of paper.
