About the Course

In this one day workshop the talented Emma Boyes will teach you everything you need to know to craft your own colourful bouquet. You will learn the basic techniques of papercutting, moving on to cut paper flower templates which will be shaped to create the petals, and finally create the finishing touches. All of these elements will be hand assembled by you to create beautiful floral displays that will last a lifetime.

You will leave the workshop with your own floral bouquet and the skills to create more of your displays.

Emma Boyes is one of the UK’s leading full time paper artists and a member of the prestigious Paper Artist Collective. Having a creative background, with a Masters in design, Emma first began cutting in 2010. Since then Emma not only exhibits her work throughout the UK, works on both private commissions and commercial projects but has also appeared on Channel 4 TV’s Kirstie’s Homemade Christmas. Emma’s commercial work encompasses 3D paper displays for companies such as Fossil, Clarins and GF Smith.

The class is great for beginners.
