Learn a little bit about the history of quilling before diving into the craft and making your own filigreed note card, ornament, or piece of jewelry to take home.
Quilling or filigree was a popular pastime for ladies in Regency England. Common items like jewelry boxes, screens, picture frames, and tea chests were often adorned with filigree accents.
From Sense and Sensibility, Chapter 23:
“.I should have been at my filigree already.”
