Craft and Hobbies

Paper crafts are as old as paper itself, with a profusion of different traditions originating around the world. The latest volume in the V&A's Maker's Guides series, Paper Crafts introduces a range of these fascinating traditions, offering paper projects inspired by a variety of diverse techniques, which are exemplified by objects from the V&A collection. From the classic Japanese art of origami to the gorgeously colorful and festive Polish "Wycinanki" folk decorations, the international scope of Paper Crafts is astonishing .

Paper Crafts also features a practical guide to tools, techniques, and materials for the modern paper crafter. Step-by-step projects contributed by experienced teachers and practitioners allow aspiring and established paper artists to hone their craft. With projects ranging from braided paper-string jewelry to a concertina papercut peepshow, from a silhouette family portrait to a handmade paper notebook, this book will introduce crafters to the immensely exciting creative possibilities of paper.
