Floral Fundamentals :: FOLIAGE FIRST
Date: Thursday, OCTOBER 19th
Time: 2:00PM - 4:30PM
Location: Love 'n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA
** PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A THURSDAY AFTERNOON CLASS. Check your calendar accordingly. ***
Flowers usually take center stage when it comes to centerpieces. But around Love ‘n Fresh Flowers, we covet and grow heaps of really interesting foliage, seed pods, grasses, etc that make our bouquets stand out. During this autumn afternoon class, we’ll explore the idea of creating a centerpiece focused on foliage first, with perhaps just a few accent blooms.
Ninebark, smokebush, snowberry, spirea, viburnum, mountain mint, eucalyptus, dusty miller, fennel fronds, ferns, heuchera, grasses, fragrant sweet annie, and so much more will be at students’ disposal. We’ll start class as we always do, with a walk around the farm, but this time with a focus on the plants that produce the best cut foliage for our work. Then we’ll return to the spacious barn and get to work on creating an ample, wild, textural, foliage-inspired design in a large bowl.
If you’re a floral designer looking to crack a creative rut, this class could really help you step out of your flower-focused comfort zone and embrace new materials. If you’re a farmer florist, this class will definitely expose you to lots of new cultivars for cut foliage (can you really ever have enough??). And if you’re new to floral design, this class will be super relaxed and fun while still teaching you all the basics of creating a beautiful, lush centerpiece.
Students will go home with a list of all the varieties of foliage grown at Love 'n Fresh Flowers. Students are also welcome to cut FLOWERS from our farm to take home too.
Light seasonal refreshments are provided during the workshop.
