      • Floral [Foam-Free] Designs Short Course

        Harking back to traditional floral design methods this course features 6 x different foam-free floral designs over 6 consecutive Saturday’s sharing the design principles, elements and historical references specific to construct these 6 designs.

        While the term ‘foam-free’ might be all the buzz in the floral industry at the moment, the concept is as old as flowers themselves! Way before the technology to create floral foam was even a concept, if you wanted to make a floral design it was obviously foam-free & a variety of vessels were utilised to keep florals & foliages hydrated (or not!).

        Six foam-free designs
        - Wedding Bouquet
        - Perfect Posy
        - Vintage Urn
        - Table Arrangement
        - Hanging Installation

        - choice of flowers & foliages to suit each technique & design
