Fall/Winter 2018 Workshop Series
Arabesque Quilling: Bridging Cultures With Art
with instructor Koloud ‘Kay’ Tarapolsi
Quilling is a Renaissance art form that uses strips of paper that are rolled to create designs. The paper was wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape that was glued and shaped by Catholic nuns. Now we have modern tools for you to try this pioneering art form. No experience needed as instructor will guide you in step by step instructions on creating a card, bibelot or party favor. All materials, including paper, tools, and glues are provided.
Instructor Koloud ‘Kay’ Tarapolsi is a Libyan American paper artist who has been teaching quilling for 10 years in the Pacific Northwest to children and adults. She studied African art as an undergraduate and moved to Washington to receive her Masters in International Studies, specializing in the Middle East. She enjoys using the quilling stripes in her arabesque art since the paper allows her the freedom to explore movement in calligraphy while other mediums she has tried, such as clay and wood, have been too restrictive.
COST: $30 plus $5 material fee (Please pay material fee directly to the instructor.)
BRING: All materials provided. Bring a snack if you would like. Coffee and tea provided.
This workshop is for students age 16 and up.
