Vera Jeffrey. The Flower Workshop: Ideas and instructions for handmade flowers and plants. Copyright 1980. Printed in Italy. Designed and produced by London Editions Limited. Hardcover Book, Good Condition.
Wow, is this a timepiece straight out of the eighties! This book will teach you how to make paper, silk, velvet, organza, and wax flowers & plants with easy to follow instructions and outline drawings. The examples are stunning and look very real. My mother and aunt made handmade flowers from silk for my aunt's wedding in 1981 and I think they must have used this book. Recently, a friend made flowers for her wedding from patterned paper that was quite charming for the occasion. This is a flower child's dream book. And an epic gift for anyone who loves the 80's.
