I normally teach +2.5 hour workshops, so when I was asked to teach a one-hour beginner's workshop, I knew I had to design a flower that was technically easy for newbies so it could be constructed quickly. It also had to be beautiful because it's simplicity required it. So day after day I searched for a flower that was beautiful in its simplicity. And then I found it. A 5-petal wild rose. There are so many types of wild roses, and some of them are native to the prairie provinces. This is only my interpretation of this flowering shrub.
Here's what you'll learn from this course. I teach basic paper flower making techniques, but not without adding in some special touches. You'll learn:
1. How to make a simple pistil using floral tape
2. How to make a stamen and create the pollen from pastels
3. How to cut petals and colour them for detail
4. How to manipulate the flower petals to look real
5. How to assemble the petals to the stem to create a "perpetual overlap" of naturally-looking petals
6. How to make a standard flower or rose leaf stem
This course is perfect for Beginners. Intermediates and Advanced paper florists and/or crafters will also find this course helpful and insightful.
