Hosted by Anne Tomlin

Anne is a milliner and 3D botanical artist inspired by the Sussex countryside around where she lives. She studied textiles at Farnham, graduating with a first-class degree in 1983, followed by millinery at The London College of Fashion. She was one half of the renowned hat label Bailey Tomlin with an international reputation, selling to many top stores including Liberty, Harrods and Saks 5th Ave.

She now makes bespoke hats and headpieces, and miniature wild meadows that
reflect her life long love of the natural world. Using fine silks, wire, paper clay and
millinery materials to create one 3D botanicals that are made with attention to detail
and often with a sense of playfulness. She also makes studies of nature and
wildflowers showing her concerns for our loss of wild meadows. These are displayed under glass where she interprets the essence of each flower and its personality combining old flower making techniques with her own, developed over 30 years.

Outline of the workshop:
On this one day workshop, you will learn several flower making skills. We will be
painting petals with Procion dyes to create naturalistic effects. Then bonding layers
and binding stems to make 3 delicate realistic spring flowers, anemone, daisy and
narcissus. You will learn skills you can take away, and there will be plenty of
information about suppliers and lots of useful flower making tips.
