Washi + Papercutting Workshop in Alabang

Ever since I stumbled a store of washi tapes named Hey Kessy, I've been wanting to attend her various workshops she organized for hobbyist, crafters and newbies like me. The only issue though is the location since it's always being held in Quezon City area (or anywhere in the Northern part of NCR) which is on the other end of the map from where I am thus I disregard the idea.

So imagine my excitement when someone posted this in our FB group....

Workshop Fee is Php 1700

I hurriedly checked Hey Kessy's blog to see the details of the workshop and the fee is inclusive of the ff:
- a roll Hey Kessy washi tape
- craft knife
- personalized cutting mat
- different types of paper
- practice sheets and templates
- a DIY frame kit
- snacks  

Finally the workshop is in the South! A few days ago, I've been contemplating on trying my hands on papercutting. I'm curious if it's that hard and what will be my creations during my first try. Someone from up above must have heard my thoughts and this is the answer which I effortlessly didn't looked for.

I know that some of you might associate papercutting to a paper being cut by scissors (that most kids do) but this one is different and way artsy. See some samples below:

Don't you just love the papercuts? Who knows it might become a hobby of yours truly which I can turn into a business in the future.
