NOTE: Be aware we may cancel class if a minimum number of registrations is not reached. We work to balance teachers’ need to plan for a class with students’ busy schedules — not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!

We had such great reviews and wild successes with our December papercutting class that we have asked Torben to join us again!

Learn to create these wonderful paper-cut beings with Danish artist, Torben Jarlstrøm Clausen; via Zoom. The paper cut universe of Torben Jarlstrøm Clausen is inhabited with beings who have previously been confined inside the paper. At that time the beings were weighed down by their own limitations -- with this class they are released!

In this online workshop the participants can experience the very best of cutting paper – namely the moment when the paper is unfolded and the magic occurs – that is when the happy paper cut being emerges.

“I can sense that the beings are in the paper, but at that time they are sad. They are unresolved and have something in their life that plagues them. After some help from the scissors, they are all cut free from the paper and travel around happily in our diverse world,” says Torben Jarlstrøm Clausen, who further explains that this is why all his paper cut beings smile and look so happy.

(Note: This class will be online via Zoom, not in person—a link will be sent prior to the class.)
