Quilling is a centuries-old art which requires three basic elements – your fingers, paper and glue. After a brief introduction to the histroy of quilling, students will learn how to create spiral coils and looped formations from narrow strips of paper, manipulating these into different shapes and then grouping them together to form designs. By the end of the day, they will each have made at least one greetings card or small picture to take away with them.
