About the Kit: The Albany Institute's first Art Kit is a fun quilling project inspired by a lovely quilled tea caddy in the museum’s collection. Quilling involves using paper strips to create decorative designs. The Quilling Art Kit includes detailed instructions, a craft box to decorate, paper quilling strips, simple quilling tools, and glue. A link to a short video introducing the quilled tea caddy in the museum’s collection is also included and will be found in your confirmation message.
