February 2017 Meeting

We started off the year with a ‘Back to Basics’ workshop. Noreen and Elizabeth spoke about the use of Oasis floral foam and the importance of conditioning the flowers. Then they showed us the differences between modern, traditional and contemporary designs. Noreen taught us the importance of the principles of Balance, Dominance, Contrast, Scale, Proportion, Rhythm, Unity and Harmony in floral design. We all had fun making a simple design and then discussing the tools we use to achieve a good design, namely the elements of space, line, colour, pattern, form and textures. The bench title was ‘Let’s Cool it’ and ‘stem, spike or truss’ was the horticultural item.
