To register, email the library at email@example.com or stop by the Reference Desk. Participants in this class will learn about how Polish paper cutting began, explore various designs and create their own cutouts. Included will be designs for a Tree of Life, a Heart cutout, a cutout that can be made as a gift for moms and a Polish rooster. Use your own supplies or request paper and scissors when you register.

- Black, blue, red, green, yellow (if you have other colors, choose 4 or more)

If you’d like to mount your artwork, posterboard or white cardboard works well
