- Useful Things
Papercutting is a wonderful activity for students of Year 5 for so many reasons. It encourages hand eye co-ordination, boosts composition skills, encourages a great sense of completion and achievement in making something that involves learning a skill, promotes leaning about materials and tactile awareness. For GCSE and up, paper cutting is a perfect medium to explore and extend course work. Paper cutting is a broad and varied medium with a wide range of fabulous practitioners. It's also a perfect activity for families to learn together - making and creating, starting conversations and having fun together!
I've run workshops in all sorts of venues from schools (primary & secondary) to museums, family drop in days, book festivals, Arts Award courses and after school art clubs. I have two Post Graduate Diplomas from Anglia Ruskin University for running artist in schools residencies and projects for both Secondary and Primary settings. I am a trained Arts Award advisor from Discover & Explore through to Gold. I have a current DBS and Public Liability up to £5 million.
Workshop lengths are full or half day sessions.
PRIMARY - these workshops involve working with scissors ONLY.
GCSE, A LEVEL and FE - these workshops involve working with scissors and craft knives.
Fees: as a general guide - I charge between £25 -£35 per hour and then from £200 per day depending on the complexity of workshop, travel and materials expenses.
