Bearded Iris & Orlaya Sugar Flower Class

Bearded Iris & Orlaya Sugar Flower Class

At: The Holiday Inn, Crest Way, Barnwood, Gloucester GL4 3RX
On: 19th & 20th  Oct 2024 

From: 8.30 am – 5.30 pm daily



    During this 2-day Advanced Class, I will guide you through all the stages of making this stunning Bearded Iris with its opening bud and thickened stem with spathes at the top.   We will also make some delicate and versatile Orlaya Grandiflora flowers.  No cutters or veiners needed for these and they are super splashes of brightness for your cake arrangements. You will make all aspects of the flowers yourself, concentrating on the finer details of the Iris and bud but some pre made stems will be provided as well as wafer paper leaves for your final display as time will not allow for us to make everything without being totally frazzled.  I hope this will be an enjoyable class where I can share many new skills with you as well as relaxing with friends. 

    This is not a beginner class. You will need to show that you have at least basic skills in wired sugar flowers to attend. If you are not sure whether you are ‘advanced’ or not, please don’t hesitate to give me a call and have a chat. Send me a message from the contact tab or email if you’re not sure.

    In addition to the cost, Sugar Delites Bearded Iris veiners are essential for this class at an extra cost. Cutters /Veiners can be purchased through me if required and I will send you full details on booking. Please bring your own basic flower making equipment.  List provided on booking.
