Quilling April Flowers,
with Mary Jane Xenakis
Thursday, April 13, from 10am-1pm. The ancient art of Quilling, also known as paper filigree, uses narrow strips of paper which are rolled, shaped and then glued together to form designs. In our April Flowers workshop students will learn how to make the basic shapes paper filigree circles, marquis, tear drops and open swirls and then glue to a given flower pattern to make the flowers shown in the kit they will receive in class. Students will receive all materials needed to complete items in a kit. This kit is available to students for a small fee. Please note, if you wear glasses for reading, please bring them. $30.

Hi! I'm Jeni, and I teach quilling at FolkTime in Portland, Oregon.
It's a drop-in socialization program for mentally-ill adults; most of our staff
deal with our own mental-health issues too, so the environment is one of
compassion and understanding. Here at our "Free To Be Me" center,
there is no "us" and "them"; we've all had similar struggles and triumphs.
About a half dozen of our members are currently interested in quilling,
so we're starting the class up again after a brief hiatus. Our new classes
include some newer members who are very enthusiastic about this "new"
art form and can't wait until our next class! (Actually, I think it's tomorrow!)
Several years ago, some good friends in our church's craft group taught me
how to quill, and I made a lot of flowers, bunnies, teddy bears, and squirrels;
but life got busy (and messy) and I hadn't done it in a long time.
Now, with our class starting up, I'm really excited about getting everyone
proficient enough so that I can start making some pretties myself!
Quilling April Flowers workshop will be held at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in 307 Old Main Street, South Yarmouth, MA.
Thanks for asking.
It would be helpful to include where the classes are: city, state, country?
