NFFC 50th Dinner

North Ferriby Flower Club celebrated their 50th Anniversary with a dinner attended by members and Ann Harding, Chairman of the North East Area of NAFAS.  We have three Founder Members who gave us a little talk on how the club started 50 years ago.  We presented founder members Rosemary Phillips, Pauline Hill and Anne Holtby with flowers.  Our speaker was Steph Hornby who now lives in the Cotswolds but was our Chairman many years ago.  She told stories about the club which made us smile.  Our Chairman, Pauline Wood, was joined by her daughter Belinda and her grandson Elliot who did a great job behind the bar.  Our caterers made an excellent meal and everyone enjoyed the evening looking at memorabilia and chatting with friends.

    JUDY WATKER returned to the Club in October to demonstrate Inspiration And Imagination.  She was delightfully funny and warm with tremendous creative artistry.  Her arrangements were harmonious and unique including specific plant material technical skills such as dyeing, weaving and folding.

    Judy was inspired by Picasso and used a circular green-wire frame decorated with green carnations, white avalanche roses and green cymbidium orchids to create the circle of life.  Her inspiration from zebra patterning was created using material dyed black and white.  She wove cycas palms into differing shapes and using white flowers created a stunning focal highlight.  Moving onto a shipwreck, Judy used a rusty sphere which she arranged with pupura violeta ginger and maxima violeta anthurium with woven cycas palm leaves to create a tropical vibe.

    Judy is a woman of many talents and we are hoping to ask her to return to do a workshop with us to share her creative skills.  The evening was enjoyed by all and her floristry talents commended by everyone.
