•. The Art of Quilling
Monday, August 4th @ 6:30 pm
Quilling or paper filigree is the art form of cutting and rolling narrow strips of paper into coils of several sizes to create designs. Strips of paper are curled, twisted and manipulated by fingers or tools. The process, which dates back to at least the 13th Century, originated with religious orders who used the gilded edges of old manuscripts to decorate religious artifacts. It is believed the paper was curled around the base of a quill (or feather), hence the name quilling. Today, this art form is resurging in popularity with some modern day techniques and tools.
