SOLD OUT: Beginners Guide to Paper Quilling (4 November 2023)

Paper quilling has been around for centuries. The exact origin is unknown but it dates back to the 16 century when French and Italian nuns would use paper quilling to decorate religious items when they couldn’t afford more expensive materials. In the Victorian era it had become a popular pastime alongside embroidery.
Paper quilling involves taking thin strips of paper and coiling, looping, and folding them to create various shapes and designs. These are then glued down onto paper or board or other surfaces. In the past this craft has only been used for decorative purposes. But in recent years, fine artists have made use of this technique in their works as a means of conceptual expression and meaning.
