On April 22, Saturday, Papel de Pinay held its first workshop for 2017. There were 5 participants (who were all very creative, I must say) in attendance. As usual, workshop kits were distributed, and everyone enjoyed the sumptuous meals and drinks served by Café Mithi.
Each participant applied their learnings during the final activity, where they made and framed their own papercut designs.
Pretty impressive works for first-timers, yeah?
It’s always a wonderful feeling to be able to impart one’s skill to another. It’s definitely a crafternoon to remember.
In this workshop, you will get to learn the basics of papercutting and some helpful tips and tricks. You will also get to take home a Papercutting Starter Kit, special paper for papercutting, and enjoy sumptuous treats from J.cuppacakes.
I’m planning to hold a Papercutting Workshop in Alabang on either February 13 or 20, and I need a show of hands (virtual hand, that is) so I can plan accordingly. Venue will be at the Spectrum Lifestyle Store at Commercenter Alabang. Comment below with your e-mail address so I can add you to the preliminary list. Thanks! 🙂
Last October 3, the first ever Katipunan Art Festival was held in Katipunan, Quezon City. Several shops, art stores and restaurants alike, held workshops and craft fairs the whole day. It was unfortunate that I was not free that day, but I’m proud and grateful to have been a part of it through the papercut exhibit organized by Hey Kessy, the All One Piece Exhibit.
The exhibit features artworks from 10 papercut artists, including, well, me. I’m really happy to be a part of this. For those who may not know, I learned papercutting from Mansy Abesamis of Hey Kessy, so it was great to somehow collaborate with her on this.
Here’s my submitted artwork. The title is “Pamana (Heritage)”, in honor of the Philippine eagle which was unjustly killed two months after it was released from captivity.
The piece is cut from a single sheet of paper, and is approximately 10×10 inches in size.
The exhibit will run until the end of October, so you still have time to check out the other artworks.
