Maryam Golubeva’s stunning paper-cutting and engraving works are an extraordinary fusion of the everyday and the eternal. The key tools required, she says, are nail scissors and divine love.

Maryam uses traditional Russian paper-cutting and engraving techniques to deliver a cross cultural narrative that aims to re-establish the deep seated historic bonds between the East and West. In this workshop she’ll share some of the methods she uses to create her beautiful work and help you to tap into the wellspring of Islamic art and divine subtext that informs her sacred geometry.
