We are fortunate to have a National Accredited Flower Show Judge and Master Judge to conduct free floral design workshops. Evelyn Warrington inspires, entertains and educates participants with a great variety of floral designs. These workshops are held just prior to our regular meetings for interested club members. |
Her September workshop demonstrated how to use an artisic piece of wood in a design. The wood could be something we found while on vacation at the beach or in the mountains. She also used twin wooden containers in the design.
|Our 2013 October lesson was to create a design using dried plant materials with a Madonna or figurine of your choice. This student's design used dried weeds behind the Madonna with lavendar statice for weight in the design. The base is an upside down plate to complement the blues in the design.|
This student's design used all dried materials including the Madonna on the right. The graceful swoop of the curved plant material above the figure repeats the curved line of the wooden base. A variety of seed pods carries the eye from the base up to the top of the design.|
This student's design used a dried branch on a wooden base as the main components of the design. She used some riparian plant material to go with the water fowl.|
The touches of white and red in the ivy wreath pick up some of the colors in the rustic figurine. The red pottery and grape vine base compliment the overall rustic design. Curves in the wreath reflect the curved lines of the pottery and base to tie the components together. |
|This gardening angel figure stands on a wooden base with her back to a cluster of roses. The white roses brighten the area above her head and the graceful swoop of pink and red roses add weight to the design. Touches of green rosemary are visible in the back of the design.|
This delicate minature design uses pastel green chrysanthemums, sage blossoms and pink rosebud for the little figurine to view. |
This white ceramic container has the Madonna figurine attached and looks quite lovely with the ring of minature pink roses at the figure's feet.
