Online Pleated Flower Making Workshop 12th Sept 2020 (afternoon)

£50.00 / Sold Out

This is a workshop for people to learn how to create pleated flowers like the ones Lora makes in her work. Although Lora uses a pleating machine to make her pleats, for this class she will teach you how to create those pleats by hand, without a machine and attach them to a flat fabric. (If you own a machine please she is running a class especially for people who have them)

The date of this workshop is:
Saturday 12th September 2020 from 15:30-18:00 UK time

In this two and a half hour online session participants will learn:
- How to hand pleat your flower fabric
- How to use your material to construct a couple of different simple pleated flowers onto fabric and stitch in place.
