Floral Fundamentals :: FOLIAGE FIRST
Date: Saturday, OCTOBER 17, 2020
Location: Love 'n Fresh Flowers | Philadelphia PA
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. You're not just stuck with foliage only!
Light seasonal refreshments are provided during the workshop.
Class size is limited to 8 people; five students must be signed up for the class to run.
Each student will be given their own free-standing workstation that has been sanitized and there will be 6+feet of distance between each workstation. Students must wear a mask while inside the barn studio space, but are welcome to roam around the farm without a mask when they are more than 10 feet away from any other individual. Hand sanitizer will be available for students to use as much as they need. Refreshments will be served al fresco in self-contained units.
No refunds are offered for students who can not make it after registering.
In case of severe weather or new/continued restrictions on gatherings, the class may be rescheduled or canceled. Students will be notified in advance as much as possible and if the class is cancelled by Love 'n Fresh, full refunds will be promptly made to all students.
