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!
This workshop includes:
The tools & materials included in this kit:
We’ve created optional materials kits to support your continued paper quilling exploration - from pre-cut strips of paper, a crimper tool, paper cutting tools like a self-healing mat, and a tulip bouquet kit designed by Zahra.
1000 pre-cut smooth strips of Zahra's 20 favorite quilling colors: varying shades of green, brown, yellow, pinks and purples.
Create fine or coarse crimped paper strips with a paper tool that ‘turns’ strips of paper through its crimping teeth.
Ready for phase two? Create depth and structure with these tools: x-acto X2000, self-healing mat, and 24" steel ruler.
This beautiful pattern is a custom piece designed by Zahra and arrives with all of the supplies needed to execute.
