Flowers Flowers Flowers!

I'm very excited to be doing a part time floristry course and I'm loving it!
I fancied trying something different and I've been meaning to do something creative with flowers for a while. Here are some pics of the first couple of weeks.

This was week two of the course: to create a wedding centre piece, we had chance to experiment and choose our own flowers, so I raided the garden and local countryside to come up with this rustic design (above), maybe not quite the traditional wedding design, but wanted to make use of local flowers.

Just had a little play around in the garden with my camera.

Week one, really didn't like this design, it's a bit formal and traditional for my liking! However it was really good to learn the theory and principles behind floristry. From now on we take our own flowers and bits and bobs.
I'm also doing a furniture restoration course so watch this space for some re- upholstered chairs in my fabric designs in the coming weeks.
