‘More drama!’ they cry ‘More detail’

It’s been a little while since we released a new flower design so we thought it was about time. As we are always looking to up our game, I think you will agree that this one takes it up a step again. Introducing the Structural Flowers Orchid Design Online Class.

We’ve started with the Orchid design to bring a little glamour and a touch of the exotic to our collection of silk flowers. This style of silk flower making is wonderful for making flowers with very striking and unusual shaped petals as the petals are wired, allowing you to mould and shape them to the sculpture they deserve to be!

And as they are structured, they are able to support a much greater amount of detail than our softer, more tactile silk flower styles. So whether you want to embroider onto the fabric like our examples, or add sequins and hot fix crystals, or even silk paint your fabric these flowers will take it on.

During the online class we will walk you through the making of the purple example shown; including prepping the fabric, embroidering the details, cutting the shapes, inserting the wires, constructing and shaping your piece.

There are Mini or Deluxe kits available to go with this online class to get you started depending on our requirements.
