THE RESTORATIVE POWER OF BEING IN THE MOMENT

After another busy day, sometimes you just want to switch off and get away from it all. 

How about some me time?

Let me lead you into the enchanting and mindful realm of paper flowers - the perfect escape, a sanctuary from the rigours of daily life and family commitments. Make flowers, and make new friends. Immerse yourself in the creative world of botanical observation! Whether you are drawn to form, colour or movement, the art of paper flowers offers the gentle solace of a truly mindful craft. Choose single day sessions or spend an evening a week creating plants and flowers using nothing but paper, wire and glue and experience the most satisfying creative pastime you can imagine.

 

You don't even need to be creative. All the inspiration you could ever need to enjoy the art of paper flowers is all around you. 

A few spaces remain on the last two sessions of The Paper Wildflower Course:

Cyclamen on Tuesday 16th July 2024 10am - 12.30pm and

Sea Holly on Tuesday 23rd July 2024 10am - 12.30pm

at Studio 3, 3 Wood Street, Hoylake Wirral CH47 2DU

What they say:

"Ling is an incredible artist and fantastic tutor, generous with her expertise and time. Workshops are always small groups and provide lots of fun as well as beautiful completed flowers." (Kate 2022)

"I made this paper peony at a workshop today. Over 4 hours of fun and all of us finished with beautiful flowers. Ling is a brilliant teacher who is patient and takes you throughout each step very clearly. This is the second workshop I have done and can’t wait for the next one. I totally recommend this as a way of spending time." (Jill 2023)
