Elizabeth Bessant is a teacher on the Obby website, teaching classes, courses and workshops at her Knightsbridge studio. She is an artist turned couture designer and crafts woman. 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.

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.
