The Joy of Glue 10am-2pm
It’s a funny old thing using glue in floristry and I took a long time to be convinced….but…I am now!
On this course we will discuss the merits of both cold and hot glue..and when to use which…Next we will discuss the techniques for creating a:
- Wrist corsage
- Pocket corsage
- Alice Band
- Hair Comb
- Hair Slide
- You can then choose which designs you would like to make
Finally I will show you how to create a ‘Hitomi’ Flower Crown – so easy and creates a headpiece that is actually secure and comfortable to wear, even covered in relatively chunky materials.
All these techniques are super useful and will (in my opinion) help you get over any reservations about using glue.
Some good designs for your portfolio too.
A short day course with all materials and copious coffee and cake included.
Please bring your own lunch.
