Dale Cougar Armstrong teaching Filigree Flower Accent/Component!



Imagine being able to create unique wedding, prom, gala, or other special occasion flower pieces from your own imagination. Students will discover how to shape and form a variety of flower petals and then make their own. This process is followed by learning how to create cold filigree to fill each petal, and then to embellish with crystal “dew drops”. The formulations and techniques shared in class will allow you to turn your creation into a brooch, a neckpiece, a decorative hair-comb… the possibilities are almost endless!

Your instructor will provide complete tool kits for use while in class and you will receive written follow-up hand-outs to take home.

Students Please Bring: notebook, pen/pencil, digital or cell phone camera (no flash please), magnifying eyewear if needed, and a bottled beverage & snack.
