Creating leather flowers for Millinery, 18th March, Gold Coast.


During this 6 hours class students will make one flower   with leaves from leather. They can choose to make various flowers, including: rose, chrysanthemum, poppy, clematis, hibiscus, orchid and peony. All these flowers are very distinct and in making them students have to use various elements of flower making technique. They will learn how to modify existing patterns and design your own flowers.

It will be three main parts of this workshop.
Preparing leather for flower-making.

Shaping flower parts with specialised tools.

Assembling the flowers.

The focus of the class will be applying Japanese silk flower making techniques to leather.

The number of students will be strictly limited to make sure that it is a great learning experience.

Very often my students come from different places so I have an idea to have two days class. Saturday- leather flower making class, Sunday-EVA FOAM flower making class. You can come to beautiful Gold Coast , learn how to make flowers and have time to enjoy the Gold Coast nature and weather.

The cost of a one day class is $150, if you book two classes it will be $280. This includes materials and a light lunch.

If you have done my class on particular material before, you will have a discount 20% if you do a class on the same material.

TO secure your place a deposit is required. For further details contact me
