Paper flower workshop review

A review of an online paper flower tutorial I did for my Silver Art Award and how my rose turned out!

What was the title of the activity?

The title of the activity was How to Make a Paper Rose tutorial.

What art form did you try?

I tried to make a paper rose -  the art form is paper craft.

Why did you take this workshop?

I wanted to learn how to make roses like the ones I saw at the exhibition but I couldn’t find a workshop nearby to attend so I did this one online.

Who taught the event, and what did you learn about this teacher?

Ann taught the tutorial and she has a blog and website called Dream Posy. She is a full time blogger and paper crafter and has lots of different tutorial videos that show how to make different flowers.

 Did you create any artwork? Describe it and the processes you undertook when you created it:

Yes I made a white paper rose that has multiple layers of petals. I had to cut out the petals and make sure they were even, then curl them and glue them in place to make the rose.

List some new skills or ideas you learnt:

I learnt to be patient as it took quite a long time to do and I had to hold it in position at each stage to dry. I also improved my accuracy skills as I had to carefully cut out all the petals without tearing them. It taught how much effort it takes to make paper look like a flower.

Did you enjoy the activity? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed the activity because I liked learning about a new art form and I was happy with the end result.
