Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is rolled, looped, curled, twisted and otherwise manipulated to create shapes which make up designs to decorate greetings cards, pictures, boxes, eggs, and to make models, jewelry, mobiles etc. The most popular and versatile technique is that of rolling. The paper strip is rolled in fingers or using a tool called a quilling needle. The coil is released and then glued at the tip and then shaped. These shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns.
From the most experienced to the newest beginner, many friendly people enjoy learning the art of quilling at the class each week.
This class is instructed by selftaught artist, Lois Weber, who has won three national awards for her beautifully quilled artistry. Under her guidance, beautiful cards, pictures, jewelry, etc. are created and enjoyed.
