Second workshop success!
On Tuesday we held our second floristry workshop for survivors. Having focussed on vase arrangements using beautiful big blooms last week, this week we used mostly foliage.
We made seasonal and sustainable wreaths using moss (not floral foam) and dried flowers and foliage. It was a more difficult and complicated skill but the ladies did very well. By the end, one of the participants exclaimed: 'I can't believe I made this myself!'. It was a wonderful moment.
In the afternoon, we focussed on a group table garland arrangement which had everyone working together and which was very rewarding.
Next week we will be using blooms again, this time learning how to make flower crowns and hand-tied spiral bouquets.
