Quilling Sunflowers ~ Introductory Workshop

  • Quilling is a lovely filigreed paper art done by curling paper with a pin tool (or a quill) and creating filigreed designs.  Craft one of these gorgeous sunflower designs or make up your own.  A 15th century art of France and Italy used first by nuns to embellish religious objects, it has had a resurgence, and well it should as it is a lovely decorative art.  Come and make your first quilled greeting card or frame it in a delightful shadowbox.  The sky is the limit on the wonder you can create with this simple yet amazing skill.
