PAPER ROSE WORKSHOP WITH Petal & Bird
On the 21st November I taught my first paper rose workshop. After 11 years of teaching I wasn’t expecting to be that nervous but teaching something developed from scratch and showcasing my own skill and not on a ‘syllabus’ was a special moment for me, and the excitement was there! (Que the butterflies)
THE SPACE WAS SET
The space was set and all materials and equipment laid out now to wait for my participants to arrive.
I had four lovely ladies signed up to the Paper Rose Workshop and as soon as I met them my nerves went away. It was lovely to tell them a bit about me and my flower making journey and then to see how they created their own roses, which they did really well and should be very proud.
MAKING THE ROSE
We went through the process of cutting, shaping and forming the petals for the rose and leaves and constructing the flower itself all in the lovely environment of Boston Tea Party in Chichester. They have a community space in the cafe which you can book to use and support small local businesses. It is such a great space, and their food and drink is really yummy too. I’m hoping to run more workshops from their soon, so watch this space!
The ladies produces really lovely roses each slightly different showing their personalities and gave me great feedback and comments. I think the smiles say it all!
