Day One: Monochromatic Design
Gift or centerpiece designs are a large part of floral design. In this class students will build upon their knowledge from previous classes introducing new techniques. Students will learn how to make two monochromatic low centerpieces in a 6 ″ x 6 ″ and a 3 ″ x 4 ″ x 6 ″ glass vase. This will be an advanced study of the crisscross / grid technique learned in Class One; here we will introduce different types of flowers and learn to properly layer flowers by shape and size. This class will also include an introduction into color theory; learning how to choose the right seasonal flowers and understanding the subtleties of colors in the floral palette. Finally, we will introduce methods for wrapping and decorating the vase for a more modern and polished look.
Day One: Bridal Bouquet
Advancing from the Hand Tied bouquet learned in Class Four, the bridal bouquet is a more intricate and detail-oriented technique that is highly sought after in wedding work. In this class students will learn the characteristics of bridal bouquets and the different popular styles & trends. How to improve upon the skills learned in Class Four to make a more polished, professional, balanced bridal bouquet, and how to add ribbon treatment of various styles and techniques to complement the total design.
Day Two: Large Scale Design
Using seasonal elements such as branches and flowers, students will learn how to put together a large-scale arrangement that is suitable for an entry way or a bar. The typical size of these arrangements is 4 ft. and higher depending on the season. In this class students will learn how to properly condition branches for longevity and how to position them in a design using proper proportions for larger scale vases.
Day Two: Introduction to Event Design – Introduction to Tablescaping
In this class students will learn how to coordinate the entire look of a table including the silverware, candles and of course flowers. We will create two different looks or design styles to demonstrate how the flowers and decor can change the environment. Students will learn how to gauge the height and dimension of flower arrangements to work within sight lines, how to keep multiple arrangements similar to achieve a coherent and overall look and to maintain consistency of theme and concept according to the event or client’s request
Day Three: Decorating Arches with Flowers
A discussion of the many types of structures which can be used as arch frameworks, and various ways to put them together will be followed by instruction in specific techniques for applying flowers to canopies. The floral canopy will be decorated collectively by the group.
Day Three: Cascading Bouquet
Following the deconstruction of the arch, the flowers will be repurposed for this romantic, modern styled bouquet. Students will learn how to mix blooms with wired flowers, wiring techniques and how to use wire to create length. Additionally, how to showcase a flower’s best features will also be illustrated to create a lush, cascading bouquet with a dramatic effect.
