Paper Craft Social at CreativeMornings HQ

July 11, 6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at CreativeMornings HQ

About this FieldTrip

They’re back! We’re excited to share that FieldTrips are coming back to CreativeMornings/NewYork in partnership with Adobe. Learn more about how to host a FieldTrip here.

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.
