Hamsa Papercutting Workshop

1 Day Workshop

Join artist Mindy Shapiro for this special introduction to paper cutting.

Papercutting is an ancient art form with original papercuts dating back to the 6th century in China. Since that time, artisans have used paper, scissors and knives to create objects both ornamental and functional. Perhaps you made a snow flake in grade school or have seen silhouettes. These are forms of papercutting.

This workshop is perfect for those comfortable with art as well as the novice. The hamsa, or hamsa hand, is a talisman from the ancient Middle East. In its most common form, the amulet is shaped like a hand with three extended fingers in the middle and a curved thumb or pinky finger on either side. It is thought to protect against the “evil eye.”
