Scherenschnitte Demonstration with Ingrid Lavoie

A pair of scissors and a sheet of paper, things found in every home are all you need to experience the ancient world of Scherenschnitte. The word is German, referring to the art of paper cutting. It is known to date back 2,200 years, yet it is as contemporary as today.

For additional information stop by the reference desk of the Rochambeau Public Library, or contact - todonnell@provcomlib.org

Come discover the world of papercutting and watch a modern demonstration of this timeless craft by local paper artist Ingrid Lavoie.
