Event Details

Thursday, August 23rd, 6:00pm
 
Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is the manipulation of paper strip coils to create designs. This art form back to the Renaissance period but has seen a recent revival. Quilling is now used to create all sorts of art including  cards, wedding invitations, home decor, and even 3D items. The paper coils and strips can create delicate flowers, elegant lines that mimic vector illustrations, and illusions of depth and texture.
 
This workshop will go over the basics of quilling including the tools of the trade, beginner techniques and shapes, and conclude with a crafting session to create typographic art that you can take with you. The workshop is run by Suann Chen, an advertising MFA student, avid DIY-er, crafter, and hobby artist.
 
While the workshop is free, you will need some inexpensive supplies. If you would like to purchase supplies at the workshop please bring $5 in cash. 
 
Supply list:
  • Slotted pen tool for quilling (the only place I can find on the island that sells it is Craft Supply in Pearl City)
  • A couple of toothpicks or a needle
  • Glue (Elmer's is fine)
 
Please join us for HI Capacity's first arts and crafts workshop.
