Join master metal clay artist Tracey Spurgin and learn a wonderful new metal clay technique called Quilligree!

Quilling techniques have been around for hundreds of years. It’s the simple art of rolling, coiling, twisting and shaping strips of paper to embellish a variety of objects and home furnishings.

Recently the paper crafting community has embraced this art to decorate cards, scrapbook pages and other ephemera.

Now, Ms. Tracey Spurgin will show you the possibilities with metal clay! New metal clay formulas make it easier than ever to create using the skills of paper quilling.

Tracey will show you step-by-step how to adapt these techniques to metal clay creating original keepsake jewelry you’ll love to wear. Learn how to create the look of filigree by using Tracey’s method of “Quilligree”.
