Yasemin Wigglesworth – papercut artist

Yasemin is a papercut artist based in Gloucestershire and hand cuts all her own original designs from paper using a surgeon’s scalpel.  Each piece is complete, cut from a single sheet of paper. Nature, The Arts & Crafts Movement, Iznik ceramic designs and East Asian woodblock prints and tapestries are her main sources of inspiration.

Yasemin regularly exhibits work in a few galleries across the UK and has recently started to have some of her designs published as greeting cards. Heart Gallery has worked with Yasemin before but the fairytale theme for our current exhibition ‘May All Your Dreams Come True’ really excited Yasemin and the pieces she has created for us are stunning.

So Sunday was the launch of one of our most exciting exhibitions in 6 years, May All Your Dreams Come True, inspired by fairytales and folklore. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves dressing up as characters from Alice in Wonderland, eating mini fairy cakes made for us by Truly Scrumptious, listening to magical stories in the garden told by nationally acclaimed storyteller Ursula Holden Gill and chatting to customers about the amazing work we are currently showcasing. Here is a little glimpse at our day:
