Led by award-winning quilling artist Kim Nickens, the class will teach basic Quilling, with a focus on the technique called Scrolling, and if time allows, jewelry.
Students will use quilling tools and paper to create delicate, intricate and unique artwork. Each student will leave with a completed project: card, pendant or piece of art. Students will get to keep their quilling tool and basic kit.
The term “Quilling” is thought to come from the origin of the art in which bird feathers or quills were used to coil strips of paper around. The art is thought to have originated in ancient Egypt or China. In later years, Quilling was practiced throughout Europe as a leisure activity of the affluent.
Nickens is an artist inspired by Quilling. She has traveled throughout the Northwest showing her work at many art festivals. She received the Brooten award in Idaho and her work was selected to hang in the new Kootenai Technical Education Campus. Her artwork can be found in many galleries, including The Alberta Street Gallery in Portland, Currents Gallery in McMinnville, Oceanic Arts in Newport, Blue Heron in Florence, and The DragonFire Gallery in Cannon Beach.
