Quilling or paper filigree is a delicate art. For those who are unaware of this wonderful art, quilling involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is rolled, looped, curled, twisted and otherwise manipulated to create shapes which then are used to adorn greeting cards and other objects, including making jewellery. When I learnt quilling, it was not really a smooth road for me. I learnt quilling via self-exploration of youtube videos and some help from my sister who already knew the basics of quilling. Also, because she lives in a different city, it was not really possible for me to approach her for every small difficulty I had while learning. While I have made reasonable progress, I still feel that if I had a come across a systematic Hands-On tutorial of sorts, my journey would have been way smoother.
I was recently invited by Lulupu – the Craft Lounge and Infinite Emotions – the Card Shop to undertake and share my experiences with their Quilling Tutorial – Beginner Course. And here is my experience about the same. The link to buy the course is here.
