Papercut Crafting with Hou Yumei
Wednesday, March 28, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM (PDT)
Join CCC for a very special afternoon of crafting and education with world renowned master of the ancient Chinese art of Paper Cutting, Hou Yumei.
Hou has dedicated decades to learning, perfecting, and passing on the art of paper cutting in China and the United States. Her talent and dedication was recognized by the San Francisco Arts Commission in 2010, when she was selected to design and install a building-wide artwork for the Chinatown Central Subway, slated to open in the next several years.
In this class, you will learn the basics of papercutting, its history, and its significance. You will learn hands-on, and will walk away with two hand-cut paper designs of your choice, which can be mounted, displayed, or laminated and used as a stencil.
