Each person who attends this class will make one turkey to take home. The round bodies are made from
recycled manila file folders and I will provide all materials for the class.The main shape that could be
used when creating the Turkey
is a tear drop shape. I tried to keep this simple for everyone. I give
everyone the chance to explore and create
their own kind of turkey. The tail feathers could possible
be different for each person since they have the choice to use different  shapes for the large tail feathers.
The person taking the class does not need to make exactly
what I made in the photo.  Each person taking
the class can explore and add words or anything else they want to add that represents thanksgiving
to them.

I create a kit for each student to take home with the package of quilling paper, quilling tool, instructions
for each project, write up on the history of quilling, evaluation sheet to fill out to let me know what you
would like to do for future projects and my business card.

My style of teaching I sit down and walk you through every step for the projects from beginning to end.
I create the same piece as the student in front of them while they are creating so no one is on their own
or will will get lost. If you get stuck 
 or confused I will help you through every step of the way.

Here are photos of the group who joined me in making turkey's. I even had a five year old girl join me in this class. Which was a shock to me but she was able to do everything like everyone else did for the project. I thought it would be be too hard for her. I applaud her for doing this craft project and being so well behaved. I should have made the project easier to do in case a child does join in on one of my future classes. I do not usually do classes for children since I am worried about noise levels and their focus for an hour and half. If the parent is with them the whole time and stays focused on the project the whole time without the child getting antsy then I am ok with them being there.

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Children age 12 and older, teens and adults are welcome to attend. If your a beginner or at a higher level I can provide teaching and have the time to work on projects that are simple or that can challenge you.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.

Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
