    On Thursday 9th March North Ferriby Flower Club welcomed Lucy Smith from Richmond North Yorkshire with her demonstration entitled “Flotsam and Jetsam”. Lucy is an Area Demonstrator and was a florist for 30 years, and taught Floral Art Design and Floristry. She does Workshops entitled “blooming lovely Workshops”. She brought for the demonstration amazing containers and structures for her designs all of which she has constructed using up-cycled crafting with a botanical twist, and florsam and jetsam. She is an avid collector of all things washed ashore and her imagination with the containers was amazing.

    She did 6 very different arrangements and each had a relevant title, the first being “Shoreline”. This was using blues and greys in a driftwood container where she imagined a seashore garden. The second depicted looking down into the “Caribbean” sea using blue and white and coral fern. Her third was called “The Deep” depicting life under the sea in a fantastic structure and just how you would imagine life in “the deep”. Her fourth with a hand-tied bouquet in a coloured wire frame and was a “Wedding Bouquet for a Mermaid”. Her fifth was entitled “ Harbour View” using fisherman’s floats and ropes with flowers in white and blue twisted amongst them. Lucy’s final arrangement was “Castaway” in Barbados, as this is the next location of the World Flower Show with the flowers coming out of lobster pots and using bolder colours. Lucy was a very informative demonstrator and she transported us to many places with her imaginative designs. A wonderful evening.

    On 13 th April we have Elaine Bedford from Pickering with her demonstration entitled “Walking the Dogs”. She is an Area Demonstrator. She has been very successful at competition work and is on the NAFAS photographic committee and her husband is a professional wildlife photographer so we expect to hear some interesting stories of their travels. On 11 th May we have the international demonstrator Karl Wilde who now lives in France returning to our Club by popular demand. This is an open meeting and LIMITED tickets for guests at £10 each are available from our secretary Margaret Hobson by telephone on 01482 634114 (after 4.00p.m.) or at North Ferriby Post Office.
