    North Ferriby Flower Club welcomed Mark Entwistle from Sandbach Cheshire to the monthly meeting of the Club on Thursday 13th July. Mark has worked in floristry for over 25 years and has taught floristry as College level, is a NAFAS area demonstrator and a member of the American institute of Floral Designers. We had a most entertaining and informative evening with exquisite arrangements. Mark’s title was Art for Art’s Sake. Each arrangement was depicting different genre of art.

    The first was oriental art and an artist called Hockusai in a bottle shaped container using foliage and flowers of varying heights in pink and green and depicting his 36 views of Mount Fugi. The second was the Impressionist Dagar and his painting of ballet dancers in pink. This was a symetrical design with pink “fluffy” flower, carnations, gebra, roses etc. The third was a modern sculpture in a stark frame using birds of paradise, and very straight lines. The fourth was Post Impressionism’s Van Gogh’s Jug of Flowers. It was a bold outline using blue iris, sunflowers, spider orchids and yellow roses which Mark placed on a yellow painted chair. The fifth arrangement was Minimalism focusing on one of Marks’ favourate artists Ben Nicholson. This was very stark using just red anthuriums and one large succulent and large leaves and was very effective. The final arrangement of the evening was based on Art Deco in a striking black vase with silver glitter bands. There was fan palms, white calla lillies, white roses, white Singapore orchids etc.etc. The whole arrangement certainly looked art deco and was a stunning end to a fabulous demonstration. Mark was a wonderful demonstrator.
