Behind the Scenes Lia Griffith Workshop
Papercraft Inspirations|March 2017

Papercraft inspirations and Mollie Makes got together to make paper flowers with Lia and find out more about her inspirations

Since we first encountered Lia Griffith and her wonderful talent for paper crafting, particularly flowers, she has appeared on Create & Craft TV in the UK and the Hallmark Channel Home & Family Show in the US – and that’s just for starters! Both Lia’s creative team and website have grown hugely and www.liagriffith.com is now a subscription-based site featuring hundreds of flower and home décor projects made with a range of materials, as well as an online shop. The site has 10,000 members and continues to grow! When the US-based designer got in touch to say she was going to be in the neighbourhood, we jumped at the chance to meet her in person and enjoy an afternoon of expert tuition.

We met Lia at fantastic studio space, The Forge, in Bristol, along with a group from Mollie Makes magazine. She had come over to convert us to her bespoke range of luxury crèpe paper and guide us through the process of making two of her superb paper flower projects – anemones and peonies. Despite assurances that it was impossible to make a bad paper flower using her templates and techniques, we were surprised at how good the results were – see the finished blooms above! We also asked Lia a few questions about her crafting...

You’ve made so many flowers in so many materials! How do you choose which blooms to create?
