Spring Quilling

While substitute teaching last week, I was asked by the art teacher to begin a quilling (filagree) assignment with the fifth graders. The idea was to start with a central design and work outward (most students did this). The design should be inspired by a floral motif. While most of these images will not immediately look like a floral motif, keep in mind they were only just started and probably will take at least another two hours before they are finished. But the tight coil was the most popular form for the students to make, so here they are:

Notice the layering of coils within and on top of each other.

A few students worked a little differently...
