Virtual Workshop | Monday, July 5, 6:00 pm | Making Ribbon Roses with Camela Nitschke of The Ribbonry
Camela Nitschke of the The Ribbonry, will be teaching us to make the Winchester Cathedral Shrub Rose ribbon flowers. Choice of white or red rose.
The Winchester Cathedral Shrub Rose
A white to slight pink shrub rose from David Austen, it was introduced in 1988, to honor the final resting place at Winchester Cathedral where Jane Austen passed away in the arms of her sister Cassandra in 1817..
The medium-large sized, loose-petalled rosettes in this flower are white, occasionally with a touch of buff pink and have an Old Rose fragrance, with hints of honey and almond blossoms, which becomes stronger in warmer weather.
I have spent lots of time and research choosing just the right ribbons for this project. Our rose is constructed to really look like an English Rose. A broad variety of different types of ribbon in many shades and textures give it the colors and character of a living specimen! Hand colored visual sketches and printed instructions for each special technique designed for making a petal will make completion in 2-3 hours enjoyable. There are more than three yards of hand dyed silks and taffeta as well as some special ribbons from my personal collection that make this a true work of art. Give it as a treasured gift or to sport on your hat, or lapel!
Choose from two color-ways delicate white tinged with pink, or an alternate version , bright red with inserts of dark red to burgundy silk
