Hi I’m Kate, a freelance theatre Director and Facilitator based in Bristol, specialising in making work with and for young people. Before the pandemic I was working with Tobacco Factory Theatres and The Egg theatre in Bath, as well as with other theatre companies across the UK. When all my work was cancelled in March last year I decided to turn her long-term hobby of papercutting into a small business and adapt to new lockdown life with KP Paper Designs!
Through @kp.paperdesigns I create intricate handmade papercut art as well as watercolour & lino print cards, all individually crafted and made to order in Bristol. My papercuts are cut out by hand with a craft knife on high quality paper, often backed with my watercolour art, and many pieces can be personalised. I also offer bespoke papercut commissions for a truly unique gift for someone special. I have a selection of my work on my Etsy page: etsy.com/uk/shop/KPPaperDesigns
More examples of lots of past commissions on my main website: kp-paperdesigns.wixsite.com/home
And can be contacted by email to start a conversation about a commission here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for having a look!
