Paper Cutting: a craft of the peoples of the earth
Leslie Miller, teacher
We will explore Paper Cut crafts around the world, discuss how they reflect different cultures, how they encourage curiosity for different lands and lives. We will share and practice several forms of cutting. Needed materials supplied, but feel free to bring along favorite scissors, paper, cuts, and knowledge you may have.
Bring your lunch. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, Church Street, Searsport. $50 non-member, $45 members. Includes all supplies.
Leslie A. Miller's work is in many collections and has been included in various paper cut exhibits, including an invitational show at the Cooper Hewitt Museum of American Folk Art, New York City and the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, Massachusetts.
When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
