Paper Petit Fours: An Introduction to Quilling & Origami

Saturday September 14, 2019
1 to 4 PM
JCBA Bindery, FAU Library

Join us for a fun afternoon of paper arts focused on quilling (also known as paper filigree) and origami. You'll learn over a dozen quilling rolls and scrolls and use them to create embellishments for an easy to fold origami box. These adorable little boxes look like tiny cakes and can be filled with treats or used as a celebration favor. Both quilling and origami are mindful art forms that are fun for all ages.
