History: Quilling as an art form has persevered through time, most notably making its mark throughout the eastern world. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper trimmed from books to adorn religious objects, mimicking costly gold filigree. In later years, quilling continued to be practiced throughout Europe as it caught on as a leisurely activity for affluent women who would adorn objects such as picture frames, baskets, and jewelry boxes.
Today, quilling is resurfacing again as a more accessible and affordable hobby for people of every age and background.
