Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery invites the community to meet quilling artist Heather Allard Saturday, Dec. 9, 11 am – 1 pm. A month of artist demos continues with this unique and ancient art form. Come out and have a cup of Door County Coffee, cookies, and see artists at work.
Although forms of quilling can be traced back to ancient Egypt, quilling as many recognize became popular with monks and nuns in the 16th and 17th centuries. They used the trimmed edges of books to create detailed masterpieces. It was popular again in the Georgian and Regency periods as an activity for upper class ladies looking for creative outlets. Allard continues this ancient art form and brings it into the present with bold colors and modern inspirations. From whimsical hearts and fields of flowers to dramatic fall leaves and bold color-blocks, there is sure a piece to fit anyone’s taste.
Plum Bottom Gallery, open 10 am – 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday, is located 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor on Highway 42 then east to 4999 Plum Bottom Road. For more information visit PlumBottomGallery.com.
