Creating a leather flower of your own design
WITH GALINA KOFOD
Participants will go through all the stages of the process of creating flowers from the leather.
This will include the preparation of materials, making patterns, assembling and finishing techniques. Students will learn how to work with a wide range of Japanese style flower making tools. The students will learn in detail how to make a beautiful realistic looking flower from leather. They will learn to modify existing patterns and design their own flowers. Depending on their progress, students can choose to make various roses including Old English Rose, Chrysanthemum, Poppy, Clematis, Dahlia, Orchid, Sunflower, Lily, Peony, Magnolia, and some other flowers. All these flowers are very distinct and in making them, the students have to use various elements of flower making techniques.
At the end of class, everybody will have a ready to wear leather flower of their own design.
