Episode 101 - Join Us for Season 4 and Awesome Blossom!
Welcome to Season 4!
We’ve been busy this summer with lining up guests and planning our yearlong Awesome Blossom! workshop series.
You know that our goal at Paper Talk has always been to share, connect, and grow the paper flower community. Awesome Blossom! is all about helping more people fall in love with paper flowers.
You can listen to our latest episode of Paper Talk to hear about each individual flower we’ll be teaching and the techniques we’ll focus on for each one. In the meantime, here are three reasons why you should join us:
Meet your paper flower community
One week before each class, Krista of Petal & Finch will host an online cutting party. Not only will you get some guidance for cutting and coloring your petals, but you’ll also be able to ask questions and chat with other paper florists.
Is there anything better than gathering together with people who love the same thing you do, to spend time doing and gushing over that thing you love? If there is, we haven’t found it.
Listen to our conversation to hear:
► Which flowers and foliages you’ll learn in Awesome Blossom!
► The techniques we’ll be focusing on in our workshops.
► How Awesome Blossom! works for beginner and advanced paper florists.
Learn basic and advanced techniques
Our live workshops will walk you through each step of making the flower or foliage. You’ll end the class with a finished bloom. Beginners will feel perfectly at home in our workshop, and we’ll even have a little extra help available if you need it.
We’ll also provide advanced techniques that you can try out after class has ended. Sometimes this will be an entire video, or it might be suggestions for various materials to try. For example, we’ll provide two different recipes for the final floral arranging class: light and airy, or dark and moody. You can experiment with the colors we suggest and really make it your own.
With all of the techniques we’re teaching, the goal is to help you learn a skill that you can apply to later projects. We won’t just show you how to make a beautiful bomb peony, we’ll teach you how Jessie originally broke the flower down into manageable sections and figured out how to put it all together.
As Jessie said,
“Making paper flowers should be fun.”
Period. In case you haven’t noticed, we LOVE making paper flowers. They bring us so much joy. We want everyone to find that same fun that we have.
Awesome Blossom! isn’t about learning to make a copy of a particular flower. It’s about learning skills, employing creativity, and most importantly having a ball of a time while doing it. Listen to the podcast to hear even more about why Awesome Blossom! is for everyone.
“It’s pretty much a basic paper flower overview. Jessie and I have been working on this for months, trying to figure out what’s the best way to expose more people to paper flowers, and more importantly make them fall in love with paper flowers.”
