Anna Vandelman reports:
The evening of March 15, 2017 will go down as one of surprise and delight for Pomegranate Guild members.
Who among us does not admire paper cuts? And how many of us ever thought we could add one to our repertoires? Well, we all did it!
Guest artist Annyen Lam gave us an overview of her amazing work, and then step by step instructions for us to follow along.
We used art knives, paper called classic kitakata, and a hamsa image provided by Annyen to do our work. Annyen patiently answered our questions, and helped us individually with our cutting challenges. We all came to realize how her many of hours of practice lead to her expert work. But to our delight, we each went home with a paper cut Hamsa!
