Art and Design KS4: Introduction to paper quilling with Yulia Brodskaya

Yulia Brodskaya explains that when she came to the UK she felt a creative buzz and wanted to try new things.

So, she decided to experiment with the traditional paper craft technique of quilling.

This involves using strips of paper that are rolled and shaped together.

Her work has appeared in various places, from books and magazine covers, to large advertising signs and portraits.
