Creating a Seasonal Duet: Flowers that Sing. The Design Committee will demonstrate how to create an arrangement with two complementary elements using seasonal flowers and foliage. Bring a pair of containers that share shape, material, or color -- or mood or style. Sue Zacharias and Carolyn Ellis will demonstrate how to incorporate the principles of design – balance, dominance, contrast, rhythm, proportion, scale – to create a successful arrangement. This workshop is in preparation for the November Sweet Tray competition. The fee for the workshop will cover materials.
Location: St Peter’s Parish Hall
Refreshments: Keely Gray and Kristienne Rassiger
Evoke the beauty of fall with seasonal plant material in a single arrangement using two containers. Containers can be same or different shape, material or color. A physical connection between the elements is helpful but not necessary. Placement of the containers should contribute to the artistic whole. Seasonal fresh floral material should predominate; some dried material is allowed. No artificial or dyed material is permitted. The arrangements will be displayed on a white tablecloth and may not exceed 24 inches horizontally; no height restriction. Create an overall arrangement that sings!
