French Flower-making

with Loreen Lightfoot

Friday 26th to Sunday 28th June (3 days) 10am-5pm each day


Plus £7 per day for lunch (optional) – most dietary requirements catered for


This year’s flower making class will focus on using velvets and satins. Orchids and pansies are the featured flowers and the class will especially concentrate on paint effects to create both flowers. We will learn several different techniques to finish the stems and more detailed leaves this year.
Previous flower making experience using flower irons will be very helpful and your own set of flower making tools will be required.

Fabrics, stamens, wires, glue, dyes and brushes will be supplied for a kit fee of £40.
