MODERN PAPER QUILLING
Welcome to an introduction to modern quilling with artist Zahra Ammar. In this workshop, Zahra introduces the art of quilling in her beautiful, modern style as she walks us through the coiling and paper-on-edge creation of a floral bouquet.
An age-old art that dates back to the 15th century, paper quilling finds its roots in carefully wound paper coils that are then manipulated - with careful technique and creativity - into beautiful shapes. A carefully instructed quilling pattern is a series of finite, meditative details that merge together to create a final piece. It's not until one steps back to view the 'forest through the trees' and the entire piece comes together.
We are so excited to have you join us for this project as we dive into this rich and beautiful technique with Zahra. We would love for you to share your final product by tagging us (and our featured artist!) in your photos. Don’t forget to use #thecraftersbox to show everyone - and see what others - are up to. Happy making!
