Just recently at the end of November, I was asked by Hitchin Round Table to run a paper cutting workshop for the Christmas get together of husbands & wives. The aim of the workshop was for everyone to have a go and to wrap the activity around a festive Christmas meal in a local pub. The Round Table did the venue finding - The Highlander in Hitchin. I hadn't been before so I did a recce beforehand just to see the room. I knew the food was good from recommendations I had heard...my only concern was the amount of light available.
|The quiet before everyone arrived. I had plenty of time to get set up. My workshop machine is well oiled and its great to get kitted up and ready....there is always that feeling of anticipation in the room before a workshop as imminently there is a room full of people that I don't know.....|

- I am a cut paper artist and I live in Arlesey, Bedfordshire. I'm originally from a small village outside Salisbury - Winterslow - in Wiltshire. I use a scalpel (and scissors too) to cut into single sheets of paper that I then layer from behind to create bold and striking images of buildings and places, expressing my love of the English landscape and the natural world about me.
