Making at MoB: Paper Cut Portrait

Making at MoB: Paper Cut Portrait

Join us for an hour of relaxed crafting and creation in the Museum of Brisbane. We present a range of different handmade and art techniques taught by local working professionals. Once you have finished making at MoB, explore our current exhibitions throughout the Museum.

Cutting portraits, usually in profile, from black card became a popular alternative to miniature portrait paintings in the mid 18th century. Learn how to create your own paper cut silhouette inspired by this Victorian tradition. Bring along a photograph of yourself or a friend in side profile to transform into a paper cut.

All craft materials and tools supplied. Light refreshments provided.
