Randel McGee

So, Saturday I went up to Ogden to the Treehouse Museum to see Randel McGee. Randel contacted me a while ago and mentioned that he was going to be in Ogden for a couple of weeks and was a papercutter and was interested in meeting up. I thought it would be fun since I haven't met any official papercutters ever and so we arranged an encounter.

The above picture is a shot of Randel with one of his papercuts. Randel does a show where he pretends to be Hans Christian Anderson and tells a story. While he's telling that story, he'll cut out a papercut image. I think he's going to be doing another show like this at the museum on Saturday. Here's what it says on the Treehouse webpage:
Randel will also be conducting two workshops – one for teachers on Wednesday, April 30 at 4 p.m. where he'll be doing projects from his recently published paper craft books, and another, more informal meeting with families in the Treehouse Art Garden on Saturday, May 3 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., when he'll be making dragons with children. Preregistration by calling 801-394-9663 is requested for the teacher workshop on April 30.
So if you have a chance to get out to the Treehouse museum on Saturday, go for it! It was great fun meeting Randel. I got to see his performance with his tame dragon, Groark as well. If you have small children, take them to see it. Groark teaches you a song and some great life lessons. Thanks for contacting me, Randel!
