PAPER CUT A papercut is exactly what it says - cut paper usually made into a picture or artwork. I draw the artwork onto black paper and cut this by hand to make sure it works and looks good. If I'm happy with it then I trace my drawing in a computer programme to create a digital file. This is then sent to my machine and multiple copies can be cut, although I usually limit all my editions to a maximum of 100.

FRAMING  A box or shadow frame is recommend for your papercut as the rebate keeps the glass away from the papercut which has been mounted in relief to create shadows and give a 3d effect. The papercut has been mounted onto acid free board and no mount is needed. The small square papercuts will fit an off the shelf Ikea box frame. Alternatively your framer may make a bespoke frame to your specification.

PRODUCTS  I have designed a small range of products which are made for me by UK suppliers - it's just fabric, trays and serving boards at the moment. 

STUDIO VISITS  Please email caroline@carolinerees.co.uk or ring me on 07887767556 if you would like to visit my studio. In the past I have opened my house as part of the Gower Open Studios trail, and have done this twice a year. I'm not sure when it will be happening again due to Covid restrictions
