September 2018

On Thursday, 13th September,2018 we were delighted to welcomed Lee Berrill to our Club with his demonstration entitled “Nature’s Song”.

Lee built his arrangements around the theme of nature and protecting our planet. There were arrangements depicting the rain forests, the oceans and planet earth. Lee had made most of the containers himself. He used various plant materials including hostas, aspidistra, roses (Sudoku variety), lilac coloured asters. The arrangements were very large and colourful.

After Lee’s demonstration our members had coffee or tea and went up to the stage to view the flowers and some took photographs. This was followed by a raffle and some of our members were lucky enough to take one of these arrangements home.

Our next event is on Thursday, 11th October, 2018 when Nicola Davies-Murray will be doing a demonstration called “Twigs and Twine”. During the afternoon from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm Nicola will be doing a Workshop in the Village Hall.

    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.
