On Saturday, Nov. 12 I did a floral demonstration at the Lan Su Gardens here in Portland. The focus of my talk was on using color but also included tips on using found or everyday objects.
I was left with a few flowers and invited people to come up and make a bouquet.
Here I am at the start of working on the basket arrangement. That arrangement nearly done and it’s final form.
A few other pieces in both spare and lush styles.
I have had to practice my use of complementary colors as this color combination does not come easily to me. Volunteering at The Bloom Project has stretched my skills in this area as we repurpose flowers into bouquets for individuals in hospice. We don’t get to choose what flowers we get to use!
