6 hour workshop

Daytime

Come and join Elizabeth to find out how to make beautiful flowers. Be inspired by the exquisite flowers that adorn Elizabeth Bessant Couture outfits, wedding dresses and accessories and learn a new skill.

The workshop will be held in Elizabeth’s studio in West Wimbledon and start with tea and coffee and a chance to look at her gorgeous collections for inspiration. Then Elizabeth will demonstrate how to make camellia, lotus flowers, roses and lilies in various materials. She will also share beading techniques used to create the centres of flowers.

You will be taught to create flowers and make a fascinator for the races or a corsage for a wedding outfit.

No experience necessary as you will be taught the processes from start to finish. Elizabeth’s assistant Sam will be on hand to assist you. You will design and take away your own finished piece.

I found it very interesting creating flowers from pieces of lining fabric. We were shown and given advice quite clearly. I found it very rewarding and look forward wearing my creation. The hospitality was top notch as was being in the beautiful showroom. I would recommend the experience, it’s a good way to make new friends, as well as learn a new skill.

A super workshop A friendly ambiance with super and professional tuition . Care was taken to ensure students mastered each element ( really helpful too that classes are kept small and hence personal) before progressing to the next stage . Elizabeth was keen and eager to share her wealth of knowledge ,and totally happy to discuss little tips and tricks of the trade . Her assistant Sam too ensured we all left with an absolutely super bespoke .creation. Thank You so much Sam . Light refreshments were offered during the day , as well as a healthy lunch . The salon is within easy walking distance of Knightsbridge tube , and is light and airy . Overall a fabulous day, first class everything ..I’ll be back for another course . ThankYou

I had a wonderful time, you are so generous with what you taught us giving away lots of your trade secrets . You are also a fantastic host , your food was amazing and everyone including your assistant Sam was so lovely. I can’t wait to wear my fabulous fascinator many times , but first in Ascot and see my husband’s and friends’ reaction ! I went home so happy and will definitely come to another workshop.

Her distinct special occasion outfits are often embellished with her exquisite hand made silk flowers, deco-style beading and lace appliqué. She moved into couture 20 years ago following a successful art career as a print maker exhibiting at the Royal Academy and around the world. Her instinctive eye for colour and detail – plus her insistence on perfection – has led to a loyal following of celebrity and society clients. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, she says her beads and flowers are now her paints.
