~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This detailed silk clematis video course helps you master realistic looking as well as fantasy clematis flowers for numerous applications. silk clematis

One of the most popular garden plants, clematis produce masses of flowers in a variety of shapes and colours. They make a such an attractive and versatile display either in the garden or in an arrangement that it would be very unwise of us to leave this most graceful climbing plant of the northern world out of the silk flower design.

The rich diversity of clematis flower shapes can be a source of serious inspiration for an artist in any media. Flower shapes can resemble bells, lanterns, tulips, stars, saucers, or even little elf hats.

This video course will demonstrate and explain how to create a typical clematis flower shape: a large single flower with 8 petals. You will learn how to dye your clematis parts in a realistic manner inspired by real clematis flowers.
As a vine silk clematis lends itself well to being turned into a headband as one of possible options. Hair combs, hair circlets, bracelets, corsages, chokers, sash embellishments as well as other accessories  – you name it – can be easily made with this gorgeous silk bloom.

Moreover you can make your geometric clematis flowers using metallic and other fabrics to achieve fantasy looking flowers (think golden or black blooms). You can play with the size and number of the petals. We are restricted neither in colour nor in size here.

With this video course you receive access to 160+ minutes of video instructions from the practising flower artist. Watch the video through theSilk Clematis Princess Kate artist’s eyes, follow the instructions and create, create, create!

 

An additional video BONUS awaits you if you purchase this video course TOGETHER with the corresponding DIY kit for making your Silk Clematis Vine 

With the help of the BONUS video you will be able to create a different type of clematis with bell shaped flowers as shown in the photo on the right.

Silk Camellia Japonica Video Tutorial

>>>>>> To browse all VIDEO COURSES or login to already purchased ones please visit THIS PAGE

Season inspired beautiful Camellia Japonica flowers can now be enjoyed throughout the year! Create your own camellia corsage, hairpiece or trim a hat with these striking blooms in the colour of your choice.

In Japanese literature the camellia flower symbolises the samurai warrior, a professional soldier in feudal Japan who’s main task was to defend his clan leader. As you can imagine samurai often had short lives. The flower of the camellia plant also has a short life and after a few days falls to the ground in one piece, bringing to mind the image of the fallen soldier.

Creating this beautiful flower in fabric allows us to admire the fragile camellia at any time of the year. Camellias are ideal for a spring wedding or other occasion at this time of the year. In fact a range of accessories that can be made using camellia flowers can be very wide including brooches and corsages, hair combs, headdresses, hat trims etc.

Flowers of various camellia species differ in size, number of petals etc. This detailed video tutorial demonstrates how to create Camellia Japonica simple open flowers with prominent stamens in the middle.
You receive access to 90 minutes of video instructions from the practicing flower artist. Watch the video through the artist’s eyes, follow the instructions and create, create, create!

Lace Orchid Circlet Video Tutorial

>>>>>> To browse all VIDEO COURSES or login to already purchased ones please visit THIS PAGE

Would like to master working with lace? This detailed Lace Orchid Circlet Video Course has been designed specially for you.

If you ask what fabric can enhance femininity I’ll say lace. Lace can be very versatile and different too. Black lace will add a bit of mystery and drama whilst white lace is all about romance and innocence. With the wedding season almost upon us we have decided to share the knowledge on how to work with lace and use it in flower making by creating a romantic hair circlet with delicate lace orchids and freshwater pearls.

We do not like the idea of showing how to create flowers alone. It is much nicer to make a wearable piece with fabric flowers. But it does not mean that we discourage you from experimenting. A hair circlet is just one option. The lace orchid flowers can be arranged into a bracelet, a necklace, attached to a headband or made into a corsage. Besides, the knowledge you get with this tutorial on how to work with lace allows you to create many other different flowers from lace.

More than 50 minutes of video instructions from the practising flower maker. Watch the video through the artist’s eyes, follow the instructions and create, create,create!
