Papercutting workshop with JHU Sustainability and Annie Howe

Even if you haven't heard of the art of papercutting, you've probably seen it around the city at boutiques, restaurants, local food brands, and art shows. The practice uses a knife and stencils to create gorgeous, intricate art. Here's your chance to try your hand at it!

Join master papercut artist Annie Howe from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 8, in the Sherwood Room of Levering Hall, for a fun and hands-on "Intro to Papercutting" workshop, where you will learn the basics of papercutting, how to create your very own custom papercuts.

Workshop participants will leave with at least one finished papercut and the know-how to continue papercutting at home! We will use recycled paper and locally made frames, and create nature-themed art. Light refreshments will be provided.

Typically, workshops cost about $65. This workshop is being offered at a discounted rate by the Office of Sustainability. If you bring your own frame, registration is $15, and if you choose from Annie's frame collection, registration is $20. RSVP by Monday, June 6.

This event is being sponsored by the Office of Sustainability to celebrate and support our local community partners who exemplify the meaning of sustainability, both environmentally and economically. We hope your very own nature-themed art will be a reminder of outdoor beauty in your indoor space. Join us!
