What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life. Built on top of our 20,000 monthly attendees at CreativeMornings talks, FieldTrips are community-organized events built on the spirit of generosity that has powered CreativeMornings events for the past 10 years.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Paper Craft Social at CreativeMornings HQ
July 11, 6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at CreativeMornings HQ
About this FieldTrip
Snip, snip! See what you can do with just paper, scissors and glue. We’ll kick off this social hands-on workshop with an overview of the incredible variety of papercutting traditions found across the world — scherenschnitte in Germany and papel picado in Mexico, for example — and related art forms, including collage, leaf carving, silhouettes, and animation.
After demonstrations on key papercutting techniques and pointers on sourcing supplies, we’ll dive right into cutting paper and craft the night away. We’ll have a playlist and drinks on hand to help those creative juices flow. Expect to go home with an original piece of art or greeting cards of your own design.
What to bring:
We’ll have all the basic supplies on hand. There’s no requirement to bring anything with you. However, if you have a lucky pair of scissors or particular papers or collage materials you’d like to work with, bring those.

CreativeMornings is the world’s largest face-to-face creative community. Attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.
