Far too rarely do I show you the fantastic results my students achieve with the online courses. Therefore, today a selection from the works sent to me from the Couture Flower Making course.
Flowers make life colorful. And surprising. No wonder this natural source of inspiration is used so frequently in fashion collections. It therefore forms the basis for the online course Couture Flower Making.
Challenge Flowers of Fabric
Fabric flowers can be part of a print, an embroidery, an accessory, an eye-catching detail, or an all-over manipulation of fabric. There are endless possibilities for using fabric to express the inspiration that comes from flowers. Not just its literal interpretation.
Making flowers from fabric presents a number of challenges. The question, of course, is: how do you deal with these challenges? The two most important ones are these:
- finishing (forming of frays)
- sturdiness (how to achieve a 3D effect)
And whether you are a hat designer, designer of bags, quilts or clothing … these techniques are inspiring and valuable to apply in a variety of ways. My students surprise me with their work every time.
Flowers, and your personal interpretation of them, are an excellent way to develop your own style. No one looks at flowers like you do. With the use of flowers your sense of beauty can add a unique twist to your designs instantly. Just look at the huge diversity of results from students below.
Work is done in this course from your personal inspiration and style. No imposed patterns, no fixed-defined outcomes. This is your personal journey of discovery into new possibilities in fabric.
And yes, you can reinvent yourself with these new techniques!
