An introduction to studio-based scissor making. The focus is on techniques that require no specialist scissor-making equipment or tools.  Students will make a 6" pair of scissors and will leave with the skills to make more pairs in the future - either through forging or from steel sheet.


I am a Sheffield-based maker who is passionate about scissors.  I have worked as an associate lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University with the Metalwork and Jewelry program for many years and I did my PhD studies there.  I am fascinated by the interface between historical research and practical studio practice, and can currently be found documenting the Sheffield Museum Trust Archives collection of scissors.
