Papercutting with the Boys and Girls Club

I had the honor to work with some fantastic kids at the Boys and Girls Club in my home town of South Portland.

I gave a brief talk about the history of papercutting and passed around some authentic pieces from around the world (papel picado, Jian Jhi, silhouette, etc) then the kids got to create their own original papercut. There were almost no rules, so they really got to express their creativity.

Here are some highlights of the two-day workshop

Joe's been busy lately - whipping up new pieces and actually lining up a lecture tour about papercutting too (cool, right? more details on dates and locations forthcoming...).
He's now finished a new collection, "Branches," and since it's his BIRTHDAY (woo hoo!) I thought I'd post some images from his new collection so he could sit back and relax.
Lots of sizes and styles to chose from, and they look pretty terrific as a set too!
Have a good Tuesday everyone
