I have learnt so many skills on this course that are all transferable to making other wired flowers and leaves. I thought it would be too advanced for me but Annabelle explained each step very clearly and was very supportive. She also gives you practical tips that that you may not find elsewhere. I’m very proud of the spray of flowers that I have made and am looking forward to making more at home. I would really recommend this course.
