Playing with Paper - CAP Event
Time & Location
About the Event
Judy Loberg will be presenting the art of making folded stars. Folded stars appear to have originated in Northern Europe a long time ago, where they were traditionally made with white paper and dipped in paraffin. They are close to basket weaving; made by doing repetitive folds to four long strips of paper to create a three-dimensional, sixteen-point star. Participants will learn the art of making a folded star, will dip it in wax, sprinkle with glitter and tie with a gold thread.
Virginia Johnson will be presenting the art of quilling or paper filigree. During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers. Quilling is seeing a resurgence in popularity with quillers on every continent (except Antarctica) and in every walk of life. This art form involves strips of paper. The paper is rolled, looped, curled, twisted and otherwise manipulated to create shapes which make up designs to decorate greeting cards, pictures, boxes, jewelry, mobiles etc. Quilling starts with rolling a strip of paper into a coil and then pinching the coil into shapes that can be glued together.
