This workshop is for students who have taken an introductory quilling course (or have equivalent quilling experience) and would like to expand their skills further. Working with 1/4" paper, we will focus on the following techniques used in more advanced designs:
—How to transfer key design elements, such as pattern outlines and placement markers, to your quilling surface; also tips for finding and adapting suitable designs.
—How to do on-edge quilling (quilling with a single, unrolled strip of paper). On-edge quilling is used to outline shapes and create lettering, and is also used as a fill technique in many contemporary designs. You will receive several patterns (tree, butterfly, and heart) and choose one to outline and create as your in-class project.
—How to mount your finished piece in a frame or shadowbox; also tips for adapting a design to a particular frame or mat size. You will receive a 5x7” shadowbox to mount your in-class project.
A Materials Kit fee of $15 PAYABLE TO THE INSTRUCTOR when class meets provides you with 1/4" paper in assorted colors, practice surfaces, patterns, and shadowbox. Students are expected to bring the items in the Supply List. BYO sack lunch for a SHORT on-site lunch break.
