Paper Filigree Flowers
Welcome spring with fun and beautiful crafts! Quilling, or paper filigree, is the art of creating designs with narrow strips of paper. It is believed to have originated during the Renaissance, when French and Italian nuns used quilling to decorate religious items to simulate the iron filigree work of the time. The name quilling comes from the belief that bird quills were used to roll the paper coils. The shaped coils can be arranged to form flowers and seasonal decorations (bunnies, ducks and more)!

You can then use the shapes to create cards and gifts tags, or to adorn picture frames, boxes, scrapbook pages and more. This class will focus on creating beautiful spring flowers and seasonal decorations to adorn your crafts. Please bring scissors, tweezers and a ruler with you to class. Course fee includes $7 materials fee.
