Quilling is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. This class will cover the basic tools and techniques used to create quilled images. We will cover the creation of several different basic shapes, as well as combining those basic shapes to create a larger and more intricate shape. Each student will be working with these pieces to create a finished work of art by the end of class.
Supplies: All supplies are included and participants will walk away with a kit including glue, an assortment of paper quilling strips, a slotted quilling tool, a circle sized ruler, a photo mat and shadow box.
