Take up a new craft this summer

paperLearn a new hobby from a master of the art:

Renowned papercutter, Jessica Palmer introduces the story of papercutting, then shows the reader how to ‘see the world’ as a papercutter. Sharing her art from inspiration to conclusion, she shows how to separate the visual world into positive and negative shapes and design gorgeous images, creating pattern, texture and striking images from paper. Her art is essentially ‘drawing with a knife’ and she shows step by step how to achieve this safely and effectively. A practical section explains the materials needed and techniques used, including how to work from photographs. Then Jessica shares her art in paper, which includes silhouettes, wearable art, portraits, landscapes, fashion images, book covers and illustrations, life drawing, works in 3D and more.
