Instructor: Lisa Gallagher
Skill Level: No experience necessary
Learn the centuries-old technique of Paper Filigree, also know as Quilling. Students will first be taught how to use a couple different tools to make a variety of basic shapes. Then they will be able to further practice making some of those shapes by creating a decorative medallion design which will be glued to a cardstock background, ready for framing.
Materials fee: $10 payable directly to the instructor at the time of the workshop covers plenty of paper for both practice and the project, the tools needed for the technique, as well as use of some other basic supplies during class. Several color options (solids or mixes) will be available. No additional materials are necessary.
