In today's episode we're chatting with cut paper artist Maude White to learn more about her background, inspiration and what's included in her curated kit. We learn more about the history and background of cut paper art from around the world. The art of paper cutting is incredibly diverse and has been practiced for a very long time: It first originated in the 4th century CE in China during the Han Dynasty. In the 13th century it came to Europe via Germany and Switzerland with folded scherenschnitte and silhouette art. In Japan, people create kirigami, which is cut and folded paper art. In Mexico, people create papel picado, which is folded colored tissue paper that is cut with scissors. We can't wait to share Maude's own unique technique (utilizing a sharp blade to 'slice' rather than scissors to cut) in our upcoming workshop.

To learn more, visit Maude's featured maker page on our website at: thecraftersbox.com and join us on instagram: @thecraftersbox to see examples of her beautiful work.
