Claire Sherman: Making a Paper-Cut Hamsa

March 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


A hamsa is a stylized hand for protection against the “evil eye,” frequently worn as jewelry. Made by both Jews and Muslims, hamsas are found all over the Middle East but are older than either religion. Learn about the folklore of hamsas, the basics of paper-cutting – a traditional Jewish folk art – as we make them out of paper using scissors and/or Exacto knives, and glue them to a background. No artistic talent required to make stunning hamsa designs! The finished paper-cut hamsa can be framed and hung. 

1 session
