Firstly professor Lu Shenzhong, who gave the workshop. His amazing paper cuts are all made by hand using traditional Chinese scissors. His work was included in the V&A exhibition 'Out of the Ordinary: Spectacular Craft'.
Many thanks to Carolann for telling me about Mia Pearlmans work using hand cut paper sculpture.
Finally I will briefly mention Rob Ryan. Well known for his romantic yet witty designs, he currently has work exhibited at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I hope to visit the exhibition tomorrow so will add more at a later date.
