Quilling Classes

Have you ever looked at those embellishments created by rolled paper that is called "quilling" and wondered who has the patience and how do you do that? Now is your chance. "Paper quilling (also known as paper filigree) is based on the technique of rolling narrow strips of paper into coils which are then arranged to form a decorative pattern. This form of art originated in England and has been practised for ma ny centuries. In Europe, it was first used as decorations in churches and on many religious items until the late nineteenth century. Nowadays paper quilling has become a hobby for people of all ages around the world. Paper quilling is easy to learn and the best thing about it is, you only need a few items to get started with this great activity. If you enjoy doing paper crafts and making your own creative handicrafts but have never done paper quilling before, why not give this craft a go? Who knows, one day you might be the best paper quilling designer in the world."
