Quilling

Quilling, also known as paper filigree, is the art of curling and bending paper to make designs. It has roots back to the 14th and 15th centuries where it was done for decoration by religious orders using quills. It was revived in the 18th and 19th centuries when it was taught in boarding schools as a pastime for cultured "ladies of leisure". They decorated tea caddies, cribbage boards, urns, baskets, trays, and furniture. Because of the delicacy of their works, only a few of their items still exist and are preserved in northeastern American museums.
