Lasers or scissors?

red paper flowersI’ve just attended an amazing three day course at the University of the West of England, exploring printing and laser cutting paper. Laser cutting involves careful preparation of computer files and is more time consuming than just the process of cutting on the machine. You can, however, cut huge quantities of paper shapes relatively quickly. I will still be using scissors to make envelopes and other work by hand, but the course inspired me to explore different ideas.

I make collections of tiny envelopes, postcard bundles and other paper art.

One thought on “Lasers or scissors?

  1. I have just purchased a laser cutter and am currently experimenting with cutting paper and card for artworks. I think that this machine will open up possibilities which were in the past prohibited simply because of the volume of work that they created. I will have to see.
