After looking at lots of sample flowers, our tutor Lucy will teach you how to make a variety of flowers using different techniques, such as diecutting, pattern work and paper folding.
We'll start with cutting the petals, then move on to techniques for the the shaping and colouring of our flower. You may decide to create a realistic flower, have a vintage feel with old book and music paper, or go wild with beautiful bright colours and glitter.
