The art of flower making has been around for at least 2000 years. When the Chinese invented paper back in 100 BC, they started creating blooms, lanterns and fans pretty much immediately. And even now, thousands of years late, stunning paper flower arrangements are the stuff of many a maker's Instagram feed.

Now, it's your chance to find out how it's done. Flowersmith and Papetal founder Jennifer Tran — whose works have appeared in the National Sculpture Magazine of China, Martha Stewart Living (US) and The Design Files (Australia) — is dedicating a wintry Sunday to sharing her secrets.

On June 17 at Kinokuniya Books, she'll be hosting two workshops, one on peonies at 11.30am and the other on apple blossoms at 2pm. Whichever one you attend, you'll spend 90 minutes learning how to make your own flowers, before leaving with a Jen-created sample, plus a bunch of instruction sheets, so you can continue your new-found obsession at home.
