Floral workshop by Code Bloom
Native flower arranging into vases
We were asked to run a floral workshop as part of the Mezz’s Fashion and Lifestyle campaign and wondered how many people would really be interested?
That question was quickly answered as the bookings filled up within a matter of 2 hours!
The topic we chose was native flowers and as our workshop was aimed at beginners we chose to show participants how to arrange these into a vase.
After introductions and a glass of bubbly, our chief florist Amy talked about the basic principles of floristry and gave a demonstration. Then it was over to our participants who all selected their native stems to arrange into their vases.
Participants quickly discovered that some vase shapes were a lot harder to arrange into than others. But with a bit of help and instruction in terms of foliage to use and the length to cut stems every person’s arrangement started coming together.
The rest of the session was spent analysing, asking questions, looking at each participant’s arrangement and discussing all things floral.
Given our workshop was for complete beginners we were surprised to see how amazing the arrangements looked at the end.
Congratulations and thankyou to all our lovely workshoppers, we hope to see you all in the shop soon!
