Vabosko Paper art by Samara craftsmen
Torsion-papier means the items of twisted paper. This kind of applied art originated fifteen years ago. Its authors – residents of Samara Valery Skornyakov and Svetlana Mikhailova. Vabosko Paper art by Samara craftsmen is a technique of paper processing to produce all kinds of torsion boxes, souvenirs, baskets, frames, vases, panels and accessories – bags, belts, bracelets, chains, frames, pendants, etc. Vabosko Paper art technique requires such qualities as perseverance, patience, attention, concentration, accuracy. If a craftsman has a fantasy, then the product will be extraordinary and even exclusive. Thus, a gift made in the technique of Vabosko, reflects the personality of the author, a unique and unrepeatable thing.
At the moment each of the authors of this technology, has his own style and own school. Valery Skornyakov has his direction, which he called “papier-VABOSKO” and Svetlana still remained true to the name “torsion-Papier”. She does not like when her jewelry technology is called “quilling” or “VABOSKO.”
What is the difference between the “torsion-Papier” and “papier-VABOSKO”, can’t say, I did not understand the author’s technology. According to Svetlana Skornyakova “Various articles and comments are made by people barely familiar with this art, made great confusion in the definition of this art to the public, but not for experts. Art papier torsion can not be standardized to the level of entertainment or to craft. In addition, torsion papier mistakenly credited to Quilling, as well as weaving, which refers to the traditional crafts. Torsion Paperweight – is arts and crafts, manifested in jewelry space.”
If we talk about the difference between torsion of papier vabosko, the latter is also arts and crafts, although a little more democratic in its orientation. But vabosko does not apply to needlework.
Today in Samara there are two schools that have similar, but not identical technology and different concepts. One is known for its closeness and great competition in education, art projects, following the best traditions of the Russian school of jewelry – it is torsion-papier. Vabosko manifests itself as a design school, which in addition to training and linked to multicultural, universal tradition in design concept creates a kind of creative communication within the studio space.
In addition, the Vabosko classes provide health benefits:

– The development of fine motor skills of hands, which has a positive effect on the development of speech;
– withdrawal headache, reducing the impact of stress on an organism, the stabilization of blood pressure.
