Tutor: Vanessa Stone

Time: 10.00am - 4.00pm

Vanessa Stone is a cut paper artist who makes clean lined, detail layered collages by cutting into a single piece of paper and “drawing” with a scalpel. During this one day workshop she will introduce you to the main techniques of paper cutting using craft knives and fine quality drawing papers. You will begin by making small practice samples and then create a beautiful larger finished piece of your own design, drawing inspiration form the beautiful plants in the Botanic Garden’s collection. Vanessa will be on hand to give one-to-one guidance throughout the day and teach you the central skills of making compositions from plants and natural forms that will be developed into collage.

Note: The Botanic Garden closes at 4pm in November so participants will not have access to the Garden when this course finishes.
