Advanced Design Series
Saturday, December 7th & Sunday, December 8th, 2019 (10:30am – 4:00pm)
The Advanced Design Series follows the Introductory and Intermediate Series where students learn more advanced techniques and begin to develop their own style of floral design. Students will learn four advanced level techniques and will learn how to differentiate between different design styles including organic, classic and modern. Each student will also be responsible for creating a concept and design, picking their own color palette for each instructional technique, and selecting their own flowers to best fit their concept.
In this series, an array of flowers and color palettes are available to students who then choose accompanying vessels and create designs accordingly. Guidance is given based on color, texture and scale appropriateness, and new designer mechanic techniques are featured.
