Presenters who have a special interest in their chosen topic will share their stories and expertise with participants. This program is for adults. Students ages 12-18 must have parental supervision.
The art of Quilling will be the main topic for February’s presentation. Participants will learn about the history of Quilling and explore some of the techniques and designs of advanced Quilling.
