This month we are really excited to have Poppy Chancellor from Poppy’s Papercuts coming along to our meeting. Poppy is making her name creating delicate personalised papercuts, using just a scalpel and her imagination! She’ll be showing us how to create some of our very own beautiful papercuts.
Poppy stumbled upon her way of working in the final year of an illustration degree at Kingston University when she made a 3D-paper installation of an illuminated city with silhouettes of people. She then spent a year at the prestigious Prince’s Drawing School in London where she still teaches, alongside running papercutting classes at The Make Lounge and creating bespoke pieces for commission.
You can see some of her amazing work at her website http://poppychancellor.com/papercuts/
