Classes

I offer classes occasionally on flower arranging, wreath making, or growing and drying flowers. The following photographs follow a class in the arranging process for a small one-sided basket.
First select the basket and fill with floral foam. Class 1
Next add the filler, in this case dusty miller. Also hide the foam with some moss. Class 2
Then add some of the primary elements in this case celocia cristata in a deep pink. Class 3
Then add some contrast in this case some anaphalis. Class 4
Now fill in the rest with a variety of shapes and forms such as yellow yarrow, yellow straw flowers, grey poppy seed pods and some pink gomphrena. Class 5
Finish with some silver artemisia "Silver King" and you have a finished basket. Class 6
You will need a large work table. Work Table
