2 in stock



Join us on 13 October 2018 for a SILK THISTLE BROOCH WORKSHOP.

Level: intermediate/advanced

Along with the range of photo and video tutorials PresentPerfect Creations offer an opportunity to book flower making classes with Svetlana Faulkner, the designer/maker behind PresentPerfect Creations.

Workshops are delivered in small groups of up to 3 students at a time. If desired, the silk dandelion  can be turned into a brooch or a hat trim on the day.

After the success of our silk dandelion we’d like to offer you to make another charming weed, the silk thistle. Beautiful shine of natural silk satin in combination with soft cotton velvet make this humble flower a true piece of wearable art. ☺

What you’ll learn in this workshop:

❀ painting  different fabrics with silk dyes

❀ making the stem for the thistle

❀ making the velvet foliage and shaping it with millinery tools

❀ making the thistle flower from scratch

❀ assembling the thistle and the foliage into a wearable piece of art

❀ finishing the brooch with a brooch pin

Flower making classes take place in the picturesque English town of Stamford (http://www.visitstamford.com), where Svetlana lives and creates her flower pieces. If you need more information on how to get to the venue please contact us at enquiries@presentperfectcreations.com


Price includes all the required materials and supplies as well as  tea/coffee and a light lunch.

Millinery tools are available for students to use, but you are encouraged to bring your own flower iron and a set of tools if you have them.

The workshop runs from 10 am till 5-6 pm depending on the complexity of the design and the progress on the students.
