Join Svetlana for a talk and practical demonstration on the bright charming wild velvet poppies and learn how to create these beauties using luxurious velvet and metallic fabrics.
Featuring only 4 petals the wild velvet poppy is an attractive bright flower that has always been popular and can be successfully used as a brooch, hat trim and other wearable accessories.
We are going to talk about 2 types of poppy centres, stylised and more realistic ones so you can choose which one to use in your poppies. Also several options for the leaves will be offered.
This version of a fabric poppy does require millinery tools for shaping the petals and the leaves.
At the end of the talk Svetlana will reply to your poppy related questions, if there still are any left.
A recording of the Wild Velvet Poppies demo will be accessible after the event for the registered participants for you to rewatch again when using the demonstrated techniques in your own creations later.
