Welcome, family and friends of the Eisenberg family!
The Coronavirus has had us cutting many things out over the last few months, among them travel, seder, graduations, haircuts, socializing, restaurants, pants with zippers and hugs.
But we are not going to let Covid-19 completely cut out our family and friends time. Join us in this act of artistic defiance and cut loose with some exuberant (but careful) group paper-cutting. So if quarantine has you feeling down – just cut it out!
Thanks to artist Jeanette Kuvin Oren and the magic that is Zoom, we will gather together, learn something new, catch-up and (hopefully) come away with a beautiful handicraft. Take that, Coronavirus.
Family Papercutting Workshop
Sunday, June 7, 1:00-2:00pm
Please join us for a fun and informative zoom hour of learning and making art.
Reknowned artist Jeanette Kuvin Oren will teach us about the art of papercutting.
Tour her studio, learn the history of Jewish papercutting, and make your own papercut art.
Appropriate for anyone able to work with an Xacto knife.
After you register, Jeanette will send you
the supply list, the zoom link, and the design for the papercutting
we will make during our workshop.
SUPPLY LIST for Papercutting Class
Printout of the 8.5" x 11" pattern Jeanette will send to you after you register. Print the pdf on your home printer with your regular paper.
#11 Hobby Knife and Blade. It does not have to be a name brand, but it should have a #11 blade. They can be purchased at Amazon, Staples, Target, Wal-Mart, and at most hardware stores. If you cannot find a hobby or Xacto knife, purchase a knife here from Jeanette (shipping included within the US).
Piece of cardboard to put under your papercut while you are cutting (or a self-healing mat used for cutting fabric and paper). Cardboard should be thick enough to protect the surface of your table from the blade.
Glue stick or Elmer's glue.
Backing paper (any color you like) to go behind your finished papercut. Colored papers are available at the stores listed above. You can also use paint on white paper to create nice backgrounds. Jeanette will talk about background options during class.
