— about this workshop —

In this detailed, three-hour workshop on May 28 from 6 to 9 PM at the #BBATX HQ, you’ll learn how to create a simple crepe paper rose with Mélissa Peng, the founder of Camellias and Curls. Mélissa will show you how to create the bloom and leaves, as well as various coloring and texture techniques. At the end of your lesson you’ll have the choice of taking your roses home or creating your very own two-rose crown. You’ll also receive a full set of templates and instructions to help you continue on your flower making journey!

All skill levels welcome.
