beginner

The skills learned in this beginning project are the basis for any ribbon work project and the beginning of the Petals and Posies Series.

Class Specifics:

  • 1 day/5hr
  • Skill Level: Beginning
  • Prerequisite: some sewing skills recommended.
  • Supply list available after class time is determined.

    The class fee does not include any supplies, only the teacher's time and the handout. This is a technique project therefore you will not have a completed project at the end of the class.

  • Private Lessons

    • A Private Lesson held at my studio for one to three students is held for a minimum of three hours/maximum of six hours. Cost per hour is $20.00 for each student. Estimated total: $60.00/$120.00 per student, this time frame will not allow everything covered in the handout.
    • A Group Lesson held at a store or other location for four to seven students will cost $40.00 per student for the group for the 5 hr. day.
    • A Group Lesson held at a store or other location for eight to fifteen students will cost $350.00 for the group for the 5 hr. day.
    • For further details see Class Terms for Groups.

    Pattern

    Clear line drawings illustrate the ribbon manipulation techniques that will help you learn how to make ribbon flowers. Specific measurements for various ribbon sizes take the guesswork out of yardage calculations.

    This pattern is printed in black on colored 8-1/2" x 11" reprographics paper and comes enclosed in a clear, resealable plastic bag.
