Quilling Comes to the PFAA

Published by at 6:11 pm under Quilling News

My goodness this year is starting off with a bang.  I received a call from Jackie Hill, Vice President of the Paulding Fine Arts Association, asking if I would come to their January meeting and give a presentation on the Art of Quilling.  You can imagine my surprise since I am not a member of this fine organization, but of course I quickly said yes.


The Paulding Fine Arts Association, Inc. is a non-profit organization created in 1982 to provide the citizens of Paulding County, Georgia with opportunities to experience the arts on all levels through observation, education and participation.  They have a wonderful new Fine Arts Gallery located in the historic downtown area of Dallas, Georgia.

Since there was a large turnout, I was not able to do a hands-on mini class, but instead gave an informational talk on the history of quilling, the basic tools needed to get started, and additional resources readily available.  I received a special request to demonstrate how to make simple coils with just my fingers, and followed it up with a demonstration of the needle and slotted quilling tools. 


I brought a variety of quilling samples to show the group and was so pleased at the interest shown in this art form.  We had a lively question and answer session at the end of the presentation.  I even had one art teacher indicate that she was interested in teaching quilling to her young students. 


I had a wonderful time, met some really talented fellow artists, and learned more about a great art association.  I would like to thank the Paulding Fine Arts Association for their warm hospitality and the opportunity to share the art that I love with their members.
