Quilling is a centuries-old art, which requires just three elements - your fingers, paper strips and glue. This practical guide demonstrates the techniques with step-by-step instructions and photos, and explains the best way to develop your skills and thereby push the creative boundaries of this art. Written by a passionate paper artist, it is a comprehensive guide that will inspire both novice and experienced quillers, as well as mixed media artists wishing to explore the potential of paper filigree work.

  • Roll a perfect spiral-centred coil without the need for a quilling tool
  • Make vortex coils, pixie-hood loops, huskings, multi-strip open coils, fringed flowers, ring coil tracery patterns, folded ring coils and a wide variety of other unusual shapes
  • Impress with an array of lesser-known special effects, combine different shapes into composite elements and interlock ring coils to create a chain without cuts or joins
  • Form letters and abstract shapes with quilling, build 3D models from solid coils and achieve a distinctive visual impact with different infilling and outlining techniques
  • Gain inspiration from the history of quilling and create your own original quilled designs
