Event description

Description

Kaat'i is the art of intricate paper cutting. The word “kaat’i” derives from “kat”, or “cut” in Arabic. Turkish paper cutting is traced back to the15th century when it was practiced mainly as a book art. During the Ottoman Empire Kaat’i flourished, but by the beginning of the twentieth century only a few artists were still practicing. There has been a revival of Kaat’i in recent decades and it is now used alongside calligraphy and as a visual art on its own.
