ILLUSTRATE WITH CUTTINGS
15—16 FEB 2020
Pencils, paper and scissors are tools that remind us of our schooldays when we created our first crafts. In this workshop we will use these basic materials again and delve into the fascinating world of the papercut.
The papercut technique was originally created in China, but it spread throughout the rest of the world adopting different names. From the traditional point of view, what distinguishes this technique is that the paper is cut on a single support, so that the final work is not a collage, but an overlay of perforated papers.
The first part of the workshop will be a theory explanation of the technique (presentation and examples). Then, we will learn to illustrate overlaying papers. We will play with the concepts of visible and hidden. We will create 3D scenes overlapping papers that autonomously have no value. At this point, the personal inspiration and creativity of the student arises to make their own illustrated story.
