About This Class

In this class, you'll learn all the basic finger quilling techniques I use in all of my work ( "Look Mom! No tools!"). You'll be able to practice each technique to perfection and be able to complete future classes or quilling projects much faster and with much more ease. We'll be covering some basics like curling and coiling with only your fingers, as well as cover some more techniques to stretch your art muscles, like tapering and playing with shadows.

Tha main difference between my finger quilling techniques and those of traditional quilling are, of course, that I don't use any tools to fold, curl or coil my shapes. I only use my fingers as I have from the beginning. If you're wanting to start quilling but don't yet have tools or you're interested in giving it a try without tools, this class will give loads of insight into whether these techniques will work for you.

I'm Ashley,

D.C. area paper graphics artist still completely astonished that people buy these paper thingies I make. Pink is my fave although I'm becoming partial to this cosmic combination of purple and Caribbean blue I've been working with lately.

You can find more of my work at or witness the colorful tornado that is the behind-the-scenes of PaperLiberated on Instagram.
