Corsage and Boutonnieres | Tuesday, February 27 – Non-Member
DATE AND LOCATION: Tuesday, February 27: Bill Doran Company 1739 W. St. Paul Ave., Milwaukee, WI Instructor: Lisa Belisle AIFD, ICPF
In a flower shop making wrist corsages and boutonnieres on demand creates a challenge for most designers. The designer is challenged to make them in a short period of time, to be creative with a stretch band that looks like it should be part of granny pants and to provide a distinctive flair so that the customer knows the corsage or boutonniere is one of a kind.
Join Lisa for an evening of hands-on creativity. You will make all of your own jewelry pieces including two corsages with boutonnieres to match. Lisa will show ways to make composite flowers using cold glue and present examples of intricate pieces she has made while giving tips to expand your creative process. Each piece of jewelry will be uniquely yours.
Bring your own tools: knife, pruners, scissors, wire cutters, and needle nose or jewelry pliers.
