Email to reserve your place.

Cutters to be used are listed below. If you already have any of these cutters or ones that may be suitable, please bring them along. We will use a textured veining tool for veining of most petals so this will be a very useful tool to have.

I will have a variety of cutters for additional flowers, if we choose to use them, that will be available to share within the workshop. The cutters I am able to get for you are priced in blue.

If you would like me to provide Cold Porcelain it is £5 per pack – approx 225gms. Please email me to place your order. Payment for any items requested from me can be made at the workshop.
