Thursday 17th and 18th January 2019
10am - 4pm
Level: Beginners/New Skills/Improvers
This two day course in modern floral art will enable you to ‘think outside the box’. We will be using a range of different mediums to create containers and decorations for your finished designs. You will walk away with new techniques under your belt including pinning, layering, gluing and grouping of fresh materials giving impact within the home, at corporate events or even weddings wanting that contemporary twist!
During the course you will be using materials such as bark, cardboard, slate, sticks, wood, paints and moss to create four designs with a difference enabling you to expand your portfolio of work. This course is suitable for complete beginners and for those who but want to push the boundaries of design by learning modern techniques used all across Europe.
During the 2 days you will design and take home the following designs:
- Tall design using a willow structure with intertwined with flowers on a constructed base.
- High impact parallel design with a framework backing and pinned leaves on rustic long plate.
- Low grouped woodland design with seasonal flowers using bark, cardboard and moss.
- A radial bouquet in a handmade collar for using a seasonal analogous colour scheme.
At the end of the course you will take home all the pieces you have created and plenty of new ideas to work on at home or in your workshop.
This is an ideal opportunity to enhance your portfolio of work.
The course includes all the flowers, foliage, sundries and containers that you need to complete the item(s). You take home the table arrangements and share between you the other designs.
You will also be provided with tools to use during the day. If you wish to purchase tools, we have these available and can be purchased on the day.
We suggest you bring your camera to take photos as a reminder of what you have learnt during the day.
We recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting wet or dirty (as flowers involve a bit of both!)
