This is how, step by step, we turn simple pieces of silk into a magnificent flower. More precisely in 10 different flowers in this course. And you can do the same with the help of this course!
Of course, video lessons are much longer than 1 minute :)

Each workshop lasts from 1.5 to 3 hours. It is this long because we do not hide anything and show the full process of creating flowers. We make sure that even beginners will succeed. Even experienced artisans will learn a lot about the beautiful Japanese technique of creating flowers and will be able to make flowers that look like live ones.

Fabric flowers in our lives
Chic brooches with silk flowers
Do you want to create a unique look for a holiday or for everyday life?
And even if your answer is "no" or "don't know", believe us - many women do want it! That is why most often customers ask to make a brooch for them:
* for a wedding or other big event – to decorate a dress or a hairdo in a certain color scheme
* a small decoration for everyday use. They are worn at work (even a strict dress code makes it possible to adorn yourself with a small brooch) or outdoors in spring and summer.

Our jewelry draws the eye, lifts the mood of women and people around them - and this is the main thing in any creative work.

See examples of brooches (flowers from the course by Olga Yakimova and her students)
Bouquets for an apartment or a country house
The creation of bouquets of flowers is a separate topic in our course. These are small bouquets made of 3 identical flowers as well as lush bouquets.

Bouquets in different countries differ in popularity. For example, in some countries they have only recently become of interest to interior designers of elite houses (because our bouquets can cost $500 and $2000). In European countries, on the contrary, bouquets are more popular than brooches.

In any case, bouquets are wonderful. In this course, you will be able to create bouquets of different flowers thanks to 14 different flower workshops.

Creating chic flowers from silk is available to every craftswoman. This is a luxurious work with expensive items (each composition costs from $80, bouquets from $800), which became available via video tutorials.

These are not artificial flowers that are made in Chinese factories or created using free lessons on the Internet. This is the subtle art of creating realistic, natural compositions. You'll never differ it from natural flowers.

How to make them? We have created a special course for beginners in this hobby.
What will you get with this course?

You will learn a detailed technique for tissue flowers creating: cutting out, coloring, various ways of processing the petals and leaves, as well as assembling all the elements into a corsage composition.
You will master the step by step technique of creating flowers in the Japanese Somebana technique. Under the guidance of an expert (She has got an official certificate of the Japanese Somebana school) you will make 14 flower compositions, even if you have never made tissue flowers before.
You will get skills, which will allow you to create any flowers you want. Each composition will be unique, and by creating it yourself, you will learn 14 techniques of creating flowers.
More than 400 craftswomen purchased and watched all video lessons from the course. And their experience proves, that it is really possible to make nice flowers while sitting at home and watching video tutorials online.

What the course includes
14 drawings А4 with petals, leaves and pasting for creating flowers. I repeatedly check all my patterns in practice before giving them to my students during the workshops.
14 ready-made patterns for flowers
Leaves and petals cutting-out is a really simple process. It is enough to make it once to remember all peculiarities of cutting-out parts for tissue flowers. At the lessons you'll learn how to choose tissues, how to cut it out and what tools to use for it, when it's suitable to leave the tissue or cut it according to the template.
Video tutorials about cutting-out
Video tutorials about coloring
We use only white tissues and color them in different colors. You'll learn how to move from one color to another on one petal (for example, from red to pink).
Video tutorials about changing petals with tools
To make leaves and petals, which look natural, we use specific tools - brass tips. We warm it with soldering iron, and then hot brass tips can change the form of flower parts. This is how we get flexures and lines on all leaves and petals. And this method allows saving such forms forever.
Video tutorials about creating compositions itself
This part of the course is more complicated, this is why here we deal with more detailed lessons. The way the flower looks will depend on a correct assembly. During the lesson you'll see how to put together all leaves and petals, and how to create the form of the flower. I did my best to show and explain everything in details for a clear understanding, how to get beautiful flowers through doing actions from the video. We use only white tissues and color them in different colors. You'll learn how to move from one color to another on one petal (for example, from red to pink).
The course has everything in it so that you can make 14 different flowers, even if you see such flowers for the first time and never tried this technique before.
Silk Rose Japanese technique
This is the workshop for a very simple rose. And this is the first video that we translated into English. The video has become very popular on the internet: 72,000 views and 1100 likes. The same video lesson has already scored 527,000 views and more than 7,000 likes on YouTube in Russia, and it is still the most popular complete master-class on creating roses in Japanese technique in the world.

Thanks to this video tutorial you can make a simple rose. But, I think, it is much more interesting for you to broaden the horizons and learn deeply, how to make roses and other flowers in the Somebana technique, from this course. Especially flowers, leaves, twigs, buds - bodily and interior compositions. And finally become a master of silk floristics!
«Rose Amore Mio»
The second video is part of a workshop from this course.

The course consists of similar video lessons. In the lessons, the process of creating flowers is shown step by step. You can download all the videos to your computer (or just watch the link via the Internet) and make flowers watching them at any convenient time.

Olga Yakimova
My name is Olga Yakimova.

I began my acquaintance with tissue flowers with the most complex and interesting part - with the Japanese technique with the use of brass tips, natural silks, naturalistic stamens. As soon as I made my first flower (it was an Iris), I realized that I had endlessly fallen in love with this kind of creativity!

I have been teaching the art of silk floristics for 7 years (creating flowers from silk) to artisans from all over the world. I have more than 50 step-by-step workshops and taught how to make flowers for more than 5000 craftswomen.

I was trained by the best in the world flower-making artisan Saioko Yasuda in 2014 (Somebana Japanese School of Flower Making) and now I will share with you the knowledge and skills of this technique that I did not disclose before!

In this course, I will teach you how to make 14 silk compositions with your own hands and will reveal to you all the secrets of creating flowers.
