By the 11th century it had made its way throughout Europe. Each culture along that path developed its own unique style of papercutting using scissors, knives, hammers and more. Now considered a folk-art medium, papercutting is experiencing a renaissance with more people than ever cutting paper to reflect modern times. In this workshop you’ll learn the basic techniques of knife cutting, use them to cut your own cityscape from a provided photo, and learn how to work from your own photos in the future.

In its citation, the Nobel Committee marked Glück's accessible language, her urgent voice, and her use of biting wit and humor. We'll talk about these characteristics--and perhaps more!--in looking at three poems by America's most recent Nobel Laureate.

Mar 25 - Pysanky: Creating a New World Vision From Ancient Design with Coreen Weilminster (via Zoom) Thursday, March 25, 2021 | 6-8 pm Location: Arts Alive! - online Contact: Chestertown River Arts Phone: 410-778-6300 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org URL: https://community.chestertownriverarts.org/program/pysanky Considered by many to be a "sacred magical art", the creation of a talisman with specific intentions written into the life-giving egg, the Pysanky is an ancient means to celebrate the cycles and events in nature and in life. Created using motifs rooted in nature and the cycles of life, designs are made with simple instruments (made of wood and copper) called kistkas, the humble materials of beeswax and candlelight, and intensely vibrant dyes. Create a beautiful egg in the time-honored Ukrainian tradition of Pysanky, or create a symbolic piece of art to invoke a new world vision.
