Workshop #1 With the Lonely Bouquet campaign approaching in May (Friday 5th May) - why not come along to this workshop at NAFAS HQ on Thursday 6th April 2017 and learn how to make 3 different contemporary, cost effective hand tieds/ structures so that you can either make yourself or perhaps teach your Flower Club colleagues. These handtied designs are also ideal gifts for friends and family; using a total of 20 roses during this workshop.
Course description: Flower Arranging Courses - One Day Contemporary Leaf Manipulation / Palm Plaiting Course to make the Design on the cover of Gill’s book “50 techniques used in contemporary floral designs”
Plaited palms are quintessentially the most stunning leaf manipulation technique which can be incorporated into floral designs and the added bonus is that the palms can be dried too for further use.
If you have attended a beginners class previously and would like to learn how to make the Contemporary 2 placement design on the cover of Gill’s book then this course is for you.
This bespoke class is size limited to ensure each receives the professional teaching required. Tuition will be broken down in stages to complete the leaf manipulation techniques before being taught how to create the contemporary design for you to take home.
All materials are provided- you just need to bring your scissors, notebook, camera and a packed lunch- drinks will be provided.
Refreshing changes to the way you can learn.
A typical week for Gill includes floral art demonstrations (often booked 2 to 3 years in advance) and flower arranging workshops around the country. Gill also provides existing students with 'One-to-One' lessons where they study either flower arranging or floristry.
For new students and workshops Gill maintains a flexibility in her busy schedule so that she can take on new teaching and demonstrating commitments. As a new student all you have to do is contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you and in discussion arrive mutually agreeable dates. Gill can also walk you through the option on cost of tuition and materials that would be required.
Gill offers the flexibility of 'One-to-One' lessons so that students can learn what they need to learn to achieve their individual goals without making the time commitment expected of them if they were otherwise to attend traditional college courses. Gill lessons are all about concentrated practical learning Student goals can, for example, be to achieve a higher practical grade in their floristry exams or to improve their creative skills when they design their next floral design.
Workshops provided by Gill can be held at your local venue or run for your group of friends and often by businesses who wish to help their staff develop new skills; banqueting and hotel staff come to mind. There are just so many people that do not have the time to attend the traditional longer term college courses yet really love making floral designs and want to do something new, refreshingly different and one day workshops are a very good solution.
You choose when; from available dates. The college's website depicts many different courses, that have been run previously, as a source of the variety of subjects that you can learn. Armed with an understanding that you can organise your next lesson as either a One-to-One, or as a Workshop, your next best step is to call Gill to discuss what you have done so far, what you would like to do next, where and when it could be taught. Gill in return can clarify any questions that you have, offer available suitable dates and advise the likely cost of materials and cost of tuition.
