July Crafternoon at Night: Paper Quilling

a simple landscape made from paper quilllingIn July, we will be “antiquing” during our Crafternoon. Well, maybe not “antiquing,” but our project has been popular since the 15th century. Paper quilling is the art of using paper strips and glue to create simple and complicated shapes and patterns. Strips of paper are quilled onto a skewer to make a shape and glued onto a canvas to create a picture. All supplies are provided. This is a more complex process, so fine motor skills win the day here! Join us on July 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Friends Room as we Crafternoon at night. This program is for adults and registration is required — register early as these classes fill quickly.

For more ideas on decorating with paper, check out these library resources. You can also explore CreativeBug, which is our database on arts and crafts activities. You can view tons of creative jewelry ideas with instructional videos, on everything from wire-wrapping to beading to leathercrafts, and more are added monthly! You will need your library card and pin (your birthdate in MMDDYYYY format) to use this database.

Stay tuned for our August Crafternoon in our program guide, on the website and in social media!
