Paper Quilling: A Fun and Enjoyable Art That Everyone Can Learn!

Dale Farland

Have you ever wondered how those delicate flowers and intricate pictures are made by paper quilling? Paper quilling may have evolved from China with the advent of paper. Now you can learn this art, and it is easier to do than you think! Even if you are worried that you are all thumbs, now is your chance to learn this technique.

Erin Newman, SaddleBrooke Ranch (SBR) resident and Southern Arizona Artist Guild artist, will be teaching this art form in a paper quilling class. All the tools, paper, and instructions for creating these delicate flowers are provided by Erin.

Everyone who has taken this class has enjoyed it. Erin will not only explain the history of paper quilling but will demonstrate several different techniques, which everyone will practice. At the end of the class, you will be absolutely delighted with the two-layer flower you create. Whether your flower is in pastel colors or vibrant colors, you will have a treasured piece of personal art while learning a new form of artistry. After this class, you can continue with this art form or simply enjoy your new creation!
