Often referred to as ‘that ribbon shop’ in hushed tones, V V Rouleaux have been trading in ribbons for twenty-six years now. And yet it isn’t just about a fabulous range of stock, though they have that, it is about getting and keeping customers, keeping on top of trends, looking the part and, most importantly, serving the customers well. V V Rouleaux is more than a shop - they also host craft courses and workshops teaching skills like millinery design and tassel making.
We are delighted to be teaming up with V V Rouleaux to offer one lucky Selvedge reader a place on one of their Flower Making workshops. The winner will be able to choose to attend the workshop in London on the 21st March (2-4 pm) or in Bath on the 22nd March (11am - 1pm).
This workshop, hosted in V V Rouleaux's London and Bath creative dens, guides you on making beautiful flowers from the shop's renowned collection of wire edge ribbons and beaded trims. By the end of the course, you will have made a selection of intricate blooms to take home and cherish. Use your exquisite creations to embellish cards, garments, and interior items, or gift to a loved one. Surround yourself with prettiness in the other-worldly shop and enjoy refreshments and good company as you craft. Refreshments will be provided to keep you going. Basic hand sewing skills required, but all materials are included.
To enter, you need to follow @selvedgemagazine and @vvrouleaux on Instagram. Then, simply comment on the photo of V V Rouleaux flowers on Selvedge's Instagram page, stating your choice of workshop (London or Bath).
Closing date: 14th March 2019
