Erin Newman, SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) resident and Southern Arizona Arts Guild (SAAG) artist, is offering to teach a new paper quilling class. Many of you have either taken her paper quilling classes or seen her incredible artwork displayed. In this class, students will learn how to make a paper-quilled bowl by making tight coils of paper and then adhering them together. The coils will be placed onto a bowl form, glued together, and once dried will make a perfect art piece for your home. There’s no need to have taken Erin’s classes previously to enjoy this class.

Class description: This class will be in two parts. First class is Monday, July 24, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Erin will supply quilling paper, tools, glue bottles, and instructions for making the tight coils. Erin will also have some creative ideas to add whimsy to your design. Think of the fun exploring your imagination for your bowl design.

You will make some coils in class; however, the majority of the coil production will be done on your own at home before the second class. Second class is Monday, July 31, from 9 a.m. to noon, allowing extra time for final steps.

For the second class, students need to have all their coils ready to be glued onto the bowl form. Once coils are glued onto the bowl, it is finished with PVA coating.

Dates and times for the classes: First class: Monday, July 24, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.; Second class: Monday, July 31, from 9 a.m. to noon
