Zoom Workshops

I love passing on my skills and encouraging students to observe and, through practise, find their own language. I like to make it fun and I am happy to share the knowledge and techniques I have developed over many years.

I am currently mainly teaching online via Zoom. Details of workshops are posted below. When you book, you will receive a Zoom link in your confirmation email; you should also receive the link in an email invitation from Zoom.

Please get in touch with any enquiries and I am happy to discuss any projects you may have in mind.

16-17th July 2021 – 16:30-19:30 BST (GMT+1)

What people say…

I am so happy to have found the most brilliant teacher…

Maya Laemmli, Switzerland

I had been long looking for a teacher with whom to further develop my flower-making skills when I found Anne. I was instantly captivated by the exquisite quality of her work. How she lovingly observes each specimen and brightly develops a way to give shape to them to the most minute detail. Moreover, she is an attentive and most welcoming teacher… I relished the days I spent with her and I can’t wait to go back and continue learning.

On this one day workshop, you will learn how to make a satin Camelia and leaf. You will be cutting silk fabric and painting  petals with Procion dyes to create naturalistic effects. The layers are then bonded and formed with silk bound stems to make a beautiful spring bloom.
