Judaic Papercutting Workshop

Arts & Performance, How-To

The art of papercutting has been adopted by Jewish craftspeople since medieval times. This art form is used to enhance Judaic art from ketubot (marriage contracts) to sukkah decorations. This workshop will take a look at a number of samples of Jewish papercutting. Then, you will have an opportunity to learn the basics of the craft! This is a hands-on workshop, and each participant will learn how to design and execute a papercut of their own. Come prepared to work!
