What is Quilling?
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 quill 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.

I started my own business and create quilled crafts for craft shows. I teach quilling classes to small groups and organizations, and children over the age of 10 to adults. If the children are under the age of 10, and they show interest and have adult/parent or guardian with them while they quill, that can be an option. Make sure all requests are local. Will not do long distance travel or make things for people who live too far away. Please be under 2 hours of travel by car. I may come out with a car rental.

I walk through every step as a group, or to the individual who is sitting in the class. I sit down and join the group, create the same item with the person/group, and teach every step as we continue to build on a project until completion. Some people in the group might be faster or slower. I work with everyone's speed to assist them with whatever questions, or if they need me to assist in another way, I come over and help.

It is a very laid-back, relaxed environment. Sometimes, the radio is playing softly in the background during class time, and there maybe open conversations going on, or it is just peaceful and quiet.

On my blog is a list of ideas of what I can do and can teach classes on. If there is a specific theme or interest, I could create or dig up ideas to create something that could meet the needs of the person/group.

The supplies cost per person is $25, and that covers the slotted quilling tool, quilling paper, xerox-copied instructions, history of quilling write up, class evaluation, cardboard wrapped with non-stick paper for a place mat, and all can be taken home in a ziplock bag. I provide the glue and the scissors for each workshop/class.

I am willing to teach classes in Albany County, Rensselaer County, and if it is under an hour to travel from East Greenbush, NY.

I can meet for church functions, girls' night outs, girl scouts, or at a local cafe for one-on-one hangouts. I teach most of my classes at Paper Crafters Unlimited, 568 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer, NY 12061.

I do work full time during the day at my main job. I am available mostly on weekends and maybe a few evenings during the week.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
I teach classes with the East Greenbush Girl Scouts, Local libraries and other places. Make items out of quilling paper, recycled manila folders, scrapbooking paper, book page wreaths, and lots of other craft projects you can see on my blog.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I am relaxed, and like a calm environment, people say I have lots of patience since I like to work long hours on craft projects that can take up to 18 hours or 30 hours (those hours broken up into several days). It can help focus kids and adults and teach them be disciplined and create art that they might not think they could do otherwise. Just let you imagination run wild and create.
