About This Class

Explore how designer Colo Alonso will guide you in this class to find your artistic side with Quilling techniques.

In this class of 32 minutes, you'll learn how to do the basic figures of quilling by rolling and folding colour strips of paper, the combination of these forms will give you the opportunity to develop many differents objects and also 3D projects.

Chameleon: made by my daughter 7 years old.


You don't need any previus knowledge, in fact it is a great opportunity to share time with KIDS making this project together, I truly recommend it!

Garland: made by my son 4 years old  (with help edging the letters)


You will learn how to make simple forms first, and the combination of them will give you pretty designs and also objects.

I encoraurage you to try it! 

See you in class!

This is good for an intro, yet I believe the 7th video should have been done without it being sped up. Even slowing down the video manually, it was hard to tell and see what she was doing.
I am itching to make this for my baby's room! The paper shredder looks like a fabulous idea as well! Thank you for that!!!
First of all i want to thank COLO for sharing us

Colo Alonso

Industrial Designer + Wife + Mother

My name is Daniela Alonso, but my friends call me Colo because of my hair color.

My studies of Industrial Design allow me to work in Argentina, Italy and Spain in technical design. But in my spare time I develop my artistic flair, creating my own candles, restouring furniture with decoupage, making origami, knitying, sewing, backing muffins etc...most of these activities I make them with my two kids (8 and 4 years old). They just love to make craft-work as much us me.
