Lace Papercutting Workshop with Pamela See

Turn paper into an intricate masterpiece by joining New Woman artist Pamela See (Xue Mei-Ling) for a papercutting workshop.

Papercutting (or ‘jianzhi’ in Chinese) is an ancient tradition of image-making dating back to the 4th century in China.

Learn more about the history, application and principles of this practice, which spread across the world to include ‘papel picado’ in Mexico, ‘kirigami’ in Japan, and the devotional ‘lace pictures’ appearing in Western Europe in the 14th century.
