Quilling and Cookies
December 18, 2017 - 10:30 am
Paper quilling is the art of cutting paper into long thin strips, rolling and pinching the pieces into different shapes and then glueing the shapes together to form decorative art.
The origins of this artwork are not known. Some people believe that quilling was started in China after the invention of paper, and others think the craft had its origins in the 13th century. Nuns would imitate the iron filigree that was used as metal ornamentation in home decor. They would roll strips of gilded paper cut from books. The paper filigree designs were then used to decorate books and religious objects.
Join our artist and instructor, Gretchen Phillips, as she shows us the quilling techniques to make snowflake ornaments. She will provide the supplies and tools, you only need to bring your creative holiday spirit.
