Description

This workshop is to introduce you to EVA foam, and the technique of using it for flower making. This amazing material is feather light, can easily be hand coloured and easy to shape and create beautiful blooms. During the workshop you will get familiar with EVA Foam and explore its advantages for flower making. You will learn the techniques of making patterns, painting, shaping and assembling your creation. In this class you will complete one or of two different styles of flowers.

Galina Kofod has many years experience making flowers from silk and fabric using Japanese flower making technique. In recent years I have  developed my own style and technique of creating leather flowers. My latest innovation is the use of EVA foam for flower making. I have been invited to conduct workshops in the France, Russia and the UK as well as numerous workshops throughout Australia including Hats off Brisbane and International Millinery Forum. My Tutorial books were published in the UK.
