I'd ask you library if they would order them for you. Some will, but that's when I lived in Washington St.

I do have a few gumpaste tutorials in youtube.. The problem in Youtube is that you can't go into details on flowers, cause the time that you get is only 10 minutes.
Calla lillies are one of the most simple flowers to make and it took me 4 parts to make it, and still there is a lot more information in how to make them even prettier.
Basically the tutorials I posted are simplified with cutters that people can find available in any craft store, so they can start playing with gumpaste. But definitevely it takes a lot more time than that. ANd you can use cutters that would make your flowers even more prettier.

I have bought the dvd set from Scott Clark Woolley and it is the best! Sure the price may put some off but if you are serious about learning from the best it is not that much. The beauty of dvds is that you can replay and replay over and over.


I have attended one day courses that cost more than this, not including childcare and travelling cost. It is much better to keep replaying until you get the technique on a dvd. In a live class the teacher will just have to move on with the rest of the class even if you are struggling with a step.

Scott is very entertaining and the quality of the dvd is great with many in focus close ups.

I can also suggest http://www.duskyroseveiners.co.uk/
for great tutorials on flowers.

I think it's a bit rude to chastise someone who comes here looking for help.
I taught myself how to do flowers because I couldn't afford the DVD's. My flowers look fine. I eventually began purchasing DVD's when I could afford them. It's not nice to make someone feel bad just because you have more experience with them. This is an artform and there are many ways of achieving it.

Craftsy.com offers affordable classes in the art of gum paste flowers. I took two classes. One by James Rosselle on Orhids and Ultimate Sugar Rose by Nicholas Lodge.  Great classes.
