This workshop begins with a look at classic techniques. We will review the skill of wiring & taping and explore the uses of these techniques in simple wired corsages and advanced designs like an over-the-shoulder corsage. Some of these techniques are challenging. With effort, the results are dramatic. We will explore the most current corsage corsage styles and the techniques used in making these corsages. The glue technique makes the creation of the classic Duchess Rose corsage and the on-trend floral cuff so easy.
We will explore the options for boutonnieres. Demonstrations include how to create a wired boutonniere, a nosegay boutonniere and the stylish pocket square. You will be amazed at the many options for flowers for men.
Then, we will shift gears and examine the on-trend flowers to wear for head pieces. We will demonstrate opulent floral crowns, floral circlets, the addition of veils and lastly, we'll create floral fascinators.
