Summer Sunday Series 2013
July 7 – “Quilling” – Heide Mahlke
Quilling 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. It is simple yet effective…so come and try your hand!
