The art of paper quilling is a satisfying art medium. You do not get messy or have to clean brushes afterwards. Many residents have taken paper quilling classes previously by SBR resident artist and Southern Arizona Arts Guild artist, Erin Newman. Due to demand, Erin is offering her expertise in paper quilling with this new class. Whether you have taken her classes previously and have some experience or are brand new, Erin will walk you through the steps necessary to create this unique artwork. Please contact Erin at [email protected] with any questions.

Class description: Erin will be teaching a new paper quilling class. In this class you will learn how to make a larger (4” x 4”) completed paper quilled art piece. Both beginning and experienced paper quillers are welcome. With this class, Erin will teach you the technique for making a portion of the art piece dimensional so it stands out from the background, which will all be quilled. You will learn variations of similar paper quilling techniques in order to create a stunning piece of art.
