About the Course
Come and join Elizabeth to find out how to make beautiful flowers. Be inspired by the exquisite flowers that adorn Elizabeth Bessant Couture outfits, wedding dresses and accessories and learn a new skill.
The workshop will be held in Elizabeth’s studio in West Wimbledon and start with tea and coffee and a chance to look at her gorgeous collections for inspiration. Then Elizabeth will demonstrate how to make camellia, lotus flowers, roses and lilies in various materials. She will also share beading techniques used to create the centres of flowers.
You will be taught to create flowers and make a fascinator for the races, a corsage for a wedding outfit or Christmas flowers to decorate your table and gifts.
No experience necessary as you will be taught the processes from start to finish.
Elizabeth’s assistant Sam will be on hand to assist you. You will design and take away your own finished piece. All materials and equipment included in the price.
The workshop is for 5 people. If you would like to match your creation to an outfit you are welcome to bring it along.

I greatly enjoyed Elizabeth's workshop. Step by step, in a way I will not forget, I learnt a new skill. With her and Sam's guidance, my flower brooches looked fabulous. All in a friendly atmosphere, chatting away and with endless top ups of snacks and drinks. Many thanks.

Response from Elizabeth Bessant:I'm pleased you enjoyed the day, we loved your idea of making a flower corsage for your handbag.
Absolutely first class workshop.
Elizabeth is most welcoming and was totally happy to share her expertise and tricks of the trade. The course was relaxed yet inspiring, friendly yet professional .. you couldn’t ask for more or better.
Sam (Elizabeth’s assistant) ensured we mastered each element before progressing to the next stage, and was both encouraging and really helpful. She also ensured we all went home with a superb bespoke creation .. Thank you Sam.
The salon is within easy walking distance of Knightsbridge tube, and is light and airy .. superb.
Light refreshments were offered throughout the day and a super, healthy lunch provided (with Prosecco 👏).
All in all a fascinating day, a real insight into design, and wonderful to come home with a bespoke flowery creation, and to have learnt a new skill...
Thank you Elizabeth .. I’ll be back.

I really enjoyed making the flowers for my fascinator. It was lovely chatting to the ladies, exchanging experiences and learning a new skill. Lunch with Prosecco then later tea and fruit cake was perfect.

Elizabeth's flower workshop was fabulous! I made a gorgeous headpiece with Elizabeth's guidance. She is incredibly talented and taught the class beautifully.
We had a delicious lunch and afternoon tea and were so well looked after by Elizabeth and her lovely assistant Sam. I have been making flowers at home today - I'm hooked! I would thoroughly recommend this workshop!

Response from Elizabeth Bessant:It was lovely to meet you, I'm pleased you enjoyed the day. Flower making can be additive! xxx
Absolutely fabulous day with Elizabeth and Sam. I left the workshop feeling inspired and confident. My daughter loved the fascinator I made for her at the workshop.
Elizabeth is an amazing teacher, the day flowed beautifully and I now have another skill. I must confess that I have been making flowers the last two days, it’s such a joy.
