Join the JASNA North Carolina Region for a workshop with The Quilling Edge’s Carolyn Edge, who will show us the basics of quilling and walk participants through a project making the pineapple design shown here.
The art of quilling has been around for a very long time, and, in Austen’s era, it was called “filigree,” which may be familiar to you from Sense and Sensibility. In the novel, Lucy Steele works on a filigree basket for Lady Middleton’s “poor little Annamaria.” For added insights on paper quilling and the world of Austen, you can check out this blog post from the Jane Austen Summer Program. Pineapples, in the Regency era, were symbols of wealth and colonialism; to learn more about this, check out this excellent article from Persuasions On-Line written by one of our upcoming speakers, Damianne Scott.
