A quilled engagement card
I spent all day yesterday preparing a presentation on quilling which I have been asked to give to my local Women's Institute group next month. I'm going to talk a little bit about the history of quilling, and then discuss tools and the various quilling shapes. I've decided to prepare a lot of closed loose coils in advance so that people can try pinching them into teardrops, marquises, bunny ears etc, and then I will take the shapes they have made and assemble them into a butterfly and a flower. After that, I will show them how to roll their own coils and hopefully produce quilled flowers to mount on to gift tags which they can take away. I'm looking forward to doing this presentation, as a lot of people have already said they are interested and I think it will be fun to do a bit of teaching. I'll let you know how I get on!
