At Poppy’s Papercuts we create celebratory and commemorative papercuts to order. Our bespoke designs are Individually hand cut and designed by Poppy Chancellor and Clare Pentlow.
What they say:
‘There’s a buzz about 24 year old Poppy Chancellor who is making her name creating delicate personalised papercuts. She stumbled upon her way of working in the final year of an illustration degree at Kingston Univerisity when she made a 3D-paper installation of an illuminated city with silhouettes of people. She then spent a year at the prestigious Prince’s Drawing School in London where she still teaches, alongside running papercutting classes at The Make Lounge.
Her passions are late nights spent dancing to reggae, her hero Eric Cantona and, yes, papercuts. What inspires her? ‘Mexican paper cuts. They’ve got such vibrant imagery and when I saw them I thought, “wow, I want to do that”.’
