Beginners Paper Quilling
Paper quilling lets you coil and shape colourful strips of paper into beautiful works of art. This art form looks complicated and fiddly but we PROMISE you it is not as hard as it looks, and we consider it completely suitable for an absolute beginner.
Quilled projects are light, delicate and look very intricate. They give a strong sense that someone has put a lot of time in making them. We will provide a large selection of templates to choose from and a lovely box frame to mount your finished work. You will also leave the workshop with a quilling tool and a fine glue applicator to continue your new craft at home.
All materials are supplied plus beverages and light snacks.
Intaglio printing is often referred to as drypoint etching. During this workshop we will be use pointed tools to etch (cut and mark) an acetate plate. The burr we create in the acetate will help hold ink in the recessed areas. Once etched, we will ink up and print our plate using an etching press.
We’ll be using a variety of lovely papers in our printing process, taking care to notice the differences that dampening the paper can make while printing.
This etching process requires you to hand draw marks onto your plate. If you feel free hand drawing is not your strong point, we have plenty of reference images you may use. The acetate we have is crystal clear and perfect for tracing an image for beginners or for those that just want to jump straight into the process without the worry of drawing out an image.
Beverages and light snacks are included as are all materials. This workshop is suitable for all ages.
