Silk Flower Making

‘This headpiece can’t be beat’

Harpers Bazaar exulted in 2019 the hat that Queen Maxima wore at Royal Ascot - she wore one of my creations. As you can imagine, I was bursting with pride. If anyone knows how to wear a hat, it is Queen Maxima.
Do you want to shine just like her with the perfect flower hat that matches your outfit. But have no idea how to make beautiful flowers? Follow my new Online Masterclass Couture Flower Making and I will teach you the tricks of making flowers.

We see them more and more: corsages. Used instead of a wedding bouquet, or to complement an elegant outfit.

Of course, a wedding bouquet is lovely. But also terribly impractical. You just stand there holding it, with everybody wanting to shake your hand all the time. Increasingly, we see brides wearing wrist corsages. Make one out of silk flowers and you will have a lasting memento.

You have an elegant, festive outfit but a hat or fascinator is just that bit ‘too much’? A silk flower corsage can be worn in your hair, around your neck, or your wrist. And a corsage is easily adaptable, so each time you will be wearing something slightly different.

With expert guidance, you can make the silk flowers and compose your own, unique corsage, during this Online Masterclass.

This is your chance to learn the art of flower making, from your own home, and at a time that suits you.

  • In your own time and in your own pace

What a great Masterclass. I had no idea that you could make such beautiful flowers with this special craft. The result is beyond expectations. I feel like Coco Chanel with her Camellia. And I look forward to learning more about it.
