    Processes involved in making artificial flowers.

  • Description

    Notting Hill Gate, London.

    M/S and C/Us of Harry Nairn who makes intricate artificial flowers. We see C/Us of him cutting out petals, colouring them, shaping them with a heated metal tool then crimping petals. We see a pink rose taking shape as Harry moulds the petals around wire. He brings the flower very close to the camera. C/Us of various flowers that Harry has made.

    Note: the film is rather poor quality but no print exists. Flash of black halfway through film.
