I’ve been invited to demonstrate paper cutting as an activity during the North Shore Art Crawl this Saturday at Cityscape Gallery. I’ll be teaching visitors how to create simple symmetrical kirigami designs through cutting and folding, exactly like the examples I’ve included here.

I was doing research into spring-themed designs and came across these ones for sakura. Of course I had to make one of my own.

While the rest of North America is buried under oodles of snow, the West Coast glories in an early spring and an abundance of flowering trees. The downside though is that some of these trees are flowering weeks or a month too early, and that part is alarming. I worry for the long term health of these lovely trees.
