About the class

In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of paper cutting while creating cozy, seasonal fine art adornments for their winter household. The class will explore inspiring examples of papercutting by other artists, then develop their own holiday design to execute while receiving instruction on paper cutting technique. Seasonal reference images and a lightbox will be available to assist in creating your composition. Class fee includes use of all materials: an exacto knife, extra blades, bristol paper, tracing paper, scissors, double-sided tape, cutting mat, ruler, and electric votive to illuminate your paper lantern safely. This workshop is suitable for all levels of artistic ability. Participants must have strong enough fine motor abilities to handle a sharp blade safely. 

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
