Coral Charm Peony – Online Workshop
July 8, 2021 - July 9, 2021
Virtual Workshop, hosted on Zoom, by Anne Tomlin
In this 2-part workshop you will learn how to make a silk peony and bud. I will show you some of my flower-making techniques to make a realistic flower. The skills you learn over the two days can be applied to other peonies and flowers. I will also provide a worksheet, templates and supplier list.
This workshop will run over two days, 3 hours each day online via Zoom. I will send the tutorial, templates and all that you need to take part after you have made the payment. A recording of the workshop will be sent to you.
I will show you how I make this particular peony but I will also show examples of how you can adapt it to other types of peony.
You don’t need to cut out your templates as you can trace through the silk. I will show you some methods of cutting out on day one.
