I've been running quite a few workshops recently in and around Hampshire. Working with Winnal Primary School year 5 pupils, was lovely and considering it was their last day of the summer term, very relaxing. The aim was to create paper cuts in response to the children's still life drawings. This particular project was commissioned by Nicola Henshaw, a new forest artist working in wood, who has is creating a regency inspired carved seat for the Jane Austen centenary. She'll be using the paper cuts to inform her designs and the bench should be installed later this year in The Water Meadows, Winchester.
