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 email@example.com
