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 sunflower can be made into a hat trim or a fascinator on the day.
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

❀ mcreating a decorative centre with beads and other materials

❀ assembling the silk sunflower through all the stages from the decorative centre to attaching the calyx

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.
