About the Course
Learn the Art of Paper Flowers with Jules from Jolly Blossom. Jules will teach you how to create beautifully realistic crepe paper peonies that you can display at home or use as a lovely gift for someone special.
The workshop will begin with a brief overview of the materials you will need for future reference, before moving on to looking at templates and the different techniques for cutting and shaping petals. You will also learn how to create the stamen in the center of the flower. Once you have mastered this you will start to assemble your flower onto the stem and learn how to create the neat underside of the flower.
After lunch, Jules will then go through the leaf making process that will finish your bloom off perfectly. You may even have time to create more flowers during the workshop to perfect your techniques but there is certainly no pressure to do so.
Suitable for all abilities as step by step instruction given so the project is easily achievable at each person’s individual level.
The price includes all materials needed to create you finished product, which you can then proudly display at home!
All abilities welcome
