ONE DAY JAPANESE INSPIRED FLOWER ARRANGING WORKSHOP

I wanted to create a unique experience for you, that invites you into my world of creativity, with gorgeous flowers, foliage, enchanting music, delicious food, set in my London Studio with a brightly lit conservatory and large garden that is a country getaway in the heart of the City and the perfect backdrop for photographs. An experience that will stay with you forever and allow you to take what you will from what you have learnt and apply it to your own lifestyle. Since it will be autumn, my favourite season for foliage and flowers, and such an iconic time aesthetically in Japan, we will be incorporating the wabi-sabi art of imperfection that is often found in Japanese aesthetic and the art of Ikebana, using some beautiful wired urns and moss.

Day description:

Using Autumn foliage we will create a base for some beautiful Autumn coloured flowers to find their home in and amongst the leaves. It will be wild yet delicate, incorporating all of the knowledge that I have collected over the years having studied Ikebana and adding my twist on it. We will then cover the base of the arrangement with moss to give it that rich, lush Japanese country garden feel.

We will then create a luscious bouquet using flowers in a similar colour palette to compliment our urn arrangement.
