Who is this course for?
Do you like roses, have you a space that needs decorating, or know someone you would like to give a gift to? How about some roses – if you would like to have a go at making paper roses then this workshop is perfect for you.
You will be guided, by our tutor, through the processes needed to turn household pieces of paper and paper table napkins into beautiful 3d roses.
The session is designed to promote sharing ideas in a supportive setting where your creativity will unfold, and you will be proud of your handiwork.
All that is left is to decide where you will put your roses, or who you will be giving them to.
Support and feedback
Your tutor will be there to support and guide you throughout the course and will give you feedback at the end of the course.
