It is a very good tutorial. Svetlana Leeds you step by step with clear and generous instructions. It needs time and patience, nothing so beautiful comes quickly, but it is worth the pain!
Ros Watts –
I had always wanted to make the dandelion clock as it looks so impressive and it turned out perfectly. The instructions are very clear and it wasn’t difficult to make but it was time consuming and fiddly. It was definitely worth the effort and a complete one off!

Just received the kit. The instructions are great. Made a few little trial umbrellas with scraps before he supplies arrived, and they turned out great. It will be time consuming, but a really clever idea.

As with all of Svetlana’s tutorials, she makes the process of dying, cutting and shaping these very delicate looking flowers understandable and possible. I am delighted with all of my tutorial purchases and will continue to purchase them as they are introduced.

This is one of the best flower tutorials I have done, the instructions were easy to follow and the end result is truly amazing. The dandelions look great on my cocktail hat but also as a home decoration in a vase. Thank you Svetlana.

I saw Svetlana’s dandelion hat at last years London hat week and couldn’t resist buying the kit for the dandelion clock. I’m so pleased I did. It takes time but the instructions are easy to follow and it’s well worth the effort. I am delighted with the result.
Barbara Agnew (verified owner) –
This is an amazing challenge I’ve started the dandelion clock and I’m so excited to finish it. Thank you for the tuition which is so explicit and easy to follow if I concentrate! Many thanks.
I have been longing to get this tutorial and kit for as long as I’ve known about it…I generally work in Cold Porcelain (akin to Gum Paste Flowers) but couldn’t afford it…I was refunded some money and I used it here!
I could not figure out how the dandelion clocks were made on my own. I have wanted to add these flowers to my offerings, and let me tell you, the clocks look so difficult, yet when you read the instructions they are so amazingly simple to make. This tutorial is brilliant! I wish I could have gotten it years ago. W-O-W!!! I will be making dandelion clocks to add to my cold porcelain ‘plants’ in short order. I am amazed, surprised, grateful. Thank you, Svetlana. Now I take my ‘hat’ off to you. Blessings!

A great tutorial; easy to follow with clearly written and photographed step-by-step instructions. It took me a while to work up to starting this tutorial, thinking it was going to be very tricky (because it looks it right?), but it’s actually far more simple than it looks, it just requires precision and a huge amount of patience. It’s well worth it for the end result!
Beth Peaker (verified owner) –
I bought this last year along with the kit for making it. Like all the tutorials I have since purchased from Svetlana it’s clear and very comprehensive. Easy to follow step by step photographs of each stage … plus the wonderful little video clip for the more tricky part. Requires precision and patience but the time was so worth it for the end result. The kit was also great way to start on my flower making journey.
Antonia Black –
The dandelion tutorial was the first tutorial I have used from here and I will definitely invest in more as it was really easy to follow and I am so pleased with the results. I would recommend the kit as well as it made the whole thing so much easier for a first try.
