Ever tried Quilling ?

Andrea GothamShropshire is brimming with all types of talented crafters. Last weekend, on Sunday 6 July, visitors to Apley Farm Shop’s monthly craft fair were treated to quilling demonstrations by Andrea Gotham.

Quilling uses the traditional art of rolling paper around a needle tool. Work using this skill has been found in monasteries to decorate religious pictures. It was practiced by accomplished ladies in the Victorian era & has even had a mention in a Jane Austen book. Andrea uses the traditional methods but put a contemporary elegant touch bringing paper filigree or quilling back to life, it’s been far too long forgotten.

If you’d like to know more or try this yourself, you can contact Andrea Gotham on thefiligreetree@btinternet.com or 07956 41 57 33. As soon as I can confirm August’s craft fair demonstrator, I will write about it here.
