The London Embroidery School held a private organdie rose class with Mississippi State Universities students, studying Fashion Design and Visual Merchandising during their recent visit to London. They were keen to learn some practical skills to take home with them and what better experience could there be of the British Summer than learning how to make a fabric rose?


The London Embroidery School provided two tutors, Pearl and Meg, to teach this intricate technique. They both showed the students how to make these beautiful roses from start to finish, using some incredible bias fabric manipulation techniques.

These hand made roses are soft to the touch and can be made in any size. You can use them instantly to embellish things like cushions, clothing and you can even sport them as a hair accessory; a la Pearl!

And here is the class wearing their beautiful hand made roses.
