Hello and welcome to Paper-Kite. I’m Rachel, a local graphic designer and quilling artist.

I began quilling in 2018 whilst recovering from an operation. I was looking for a creative hobby and found quilling (or paper filigree as its sometimes known as). It is a beautiful art form dating back to the 15th Century where nuns and monks would decorate books and religious items in curled or twisted strips of paper to form a design.

Each strip of paper is hand-cut, coiled, rolled or curved into shapes and stuck down using glue. There are various techniques and designs that can be created through this process.

I specialise in creating personalised, framed artworks, perfect for any occasion. Prices start from £15 depending on the complexity and size of the design. Each piece is uniquely created and bespoke to your requirements.
