Today I bring you news of my latest floral design workshop, an afternoon's private tuition, here in the workroom at Campbell's HQ.
I was contacted a little while ago by Bestz who is a Thai MA Business student, studying at Sheffield Uni. She was looking for someone to teach her floristry basics as a bit of light relief from her very academic studies. We chatted through email before arranging an afternoon of quite intensive learning - not knowing Bestz abilities I chose a range of designs which would easily lend themselves to extension tasks if needed. Lucky I'd thought this through and had a contingency plan, as she's an absolute natural and took to the designs really easily!
I chose a nice range of materials for her to work with, some of which she was familiar with and some of which were completely new. Here's what we used:-
And here's what we made ...
A pretty, soft, all-round, vintage-inspired table design
A simple rose buttonhole, finished with lace
A natural buttonhole, finished with chord binding
A quite tricky, wired orchid wrist corsage
