Quilling- Learn a New Unique Craft at the Stony Creek Library
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 wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.
Come learn this unique art form at the Stony Creek Library, on Saturday, September 19 from 10am to Noon. In this class, participants will take home a finished piece along with supplies to take home. Cost is $15 and all supplies are included. Class size is limited to just 9 people. Sign-up by calling the Stony Creek Library at 696-5911 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
