Paper Flower Workshops

Paper crafting has seen a real growth in popularity and it’s easy to see why. The materials are accessible, eco friendly and the results last much longer than their fresh counterparts.
Paper flowers make great gifts, wedding decorations or embellishments for your home.
During the session, we will make some paper flowers together with step by step instruction from me. I will teach you my tips and techniques for petal forming, folding and curling as well as how to construct stems and different flower centres. You will then have the chance to practice your new skills by designing and making your own flowers using lots of beautiful papers from my stash. If you have some paper at home that you would like to experiment with, please do bring it along, I am yet to find a paper that isn’t suitable for my techniques.
With my help and guidance, you will leave the workshop with at least three paper flowers and the skills that you need make more flowers at home.

FAQs

Is the workshop suitable for beginners?

You don’t need any previous experience to attend my workshops, we start right from the start of the process and you will leave with the know how to be able to design and make your own flowers at home.

Can I use my own paper?

Absolutely, bring along any papers you have been saving or want to experiment with. I am yet to find a paper or card that isn’t suitable for my techniques!

Do you sell pre cut kits?

I have a limited number of pre cut kits (petals and flower centres) for sale at my workshops.  There will also be more listed on an online shop soon.

Do you have an online course?

Not at the moment, I enjoy teaching people face to face but it might be something I come to in the future.

Do you offer workshops for private events?

Yes, I have taught my workshops at hen parties and private events.  Get in touch with me and outline your specific requirements and I can pull together a bespoke proposal.

Can I buy the templates?

Yes, my custom acrylic templates are available for purchase at my workshops.  If you can’t make a workshop but would like to purchase a set, just drop me an email.  More will be available through my web shop later in 2019.

Do you have any online tutorials?

I have written a couple of guest blog post tutorials for paperchase that can be found here and here.

Do I need to bring anything?

Everything you need for crafting will be provided, alongside refreshments.
