Come stop by the Crane-Phillips House Museum on Sunday, February 24, 2013 to learn about “Scherenschnitte, the Art of Paper Cutting.” The museum opens at 2:00pm. Program will begin at 2:15pm.
Scherenschnitte which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of papercutting. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 16th century, and was brought to Colonial America in the 18th century by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania.
