The Advanced Design Series follows the Intensive Series where students learn more advanced techniques and begin to develop their own style of floral design. Students will learn four new design mechanics and how to differentiate between various styles including organic, classic and modern. Each student will also be responsible for creating a concept and design and selecting their own flowers to best fit their concept.
In this series, an array of flowers and color palettes are available to students who then choose accompanying vessels and create designs accordingly. Guidance is given on color, texture and scale appropriateness, and new design mechanic techniques are featured.
Class 10: Classic Compote Design (Day One: 10:30am – 12:30pm)
The Compote Design is a popular style that uses a low, footed vessel to showcase the flowers’ natural characteristics. This class will introduce the technique of using chicken wire to help build a grid for compote vessels. In addition, students will now have to develop their own color palette and style based on the class lecture.
Class 12: Creating Organic Containers (Day Two: 10:30am – 12:30pm)
This class will focus on how to create organic containers and cohesive, structurally sound floral compositions. Students will again be choosing their own color palette and florals to bring their concepts to life.
