Join celebrated Danish paper cutting artist Torben Jarlstrøm Clausen in a family-friendly event. Exploring the artwork of renowned storyteller Hans Christian Andersen, hear about Torben Jarlstrøm Clausen’s own journey to becoming a paper cutting artist. Clausen describes the paper cut universe as inhabited with beings who have previously been confined inside the paper. But through the magical process of paper cutting, Torben brings these unique paper beings into life and reminds us what you can do with a pair of scissors and your creativity! Bring your family and join us for his encouraging message told through art, this will be an event that will inspire artists of every age.
