“Here we go again”
We are still pinching ourselves thinking that we did not have one but TWO succesful workshops last year. This time around we decided to keep things more intimate with a smaller group of creatives.
8 Beautiful flower souls from all around the country invested in this journey and trusted us with their creative hearts.
It is important for us to make our students feel special. Our little labour of love after each day of class is to set the table. We just love to see their faces when they walk in each day and see all of the special details put together just for them.
Day 1 was all about theory and tablescapes. When learning a new skill (or even just sharping up old ones) it is best to start at the beginning. So we start with the basics and build our students up to a point where they have the skills to do anything they put their mind to.
Meet The Flower Cartel
We are lucky enough to have an awesome relationship with our flower growers and flower agents. Two of them is Louise (& Conrad) from The Wild Flower Bunch and Francois from Fanna & Flora. They also have another partner Anneke. These four decided to combine their efforts and The Flower Cartel was born. Bringing you seeds and garden kits delivered directly to your door!
Day 2 was all about phone photography with Debbie, bouquets, floral accessories and yes, a tad more theory.
Meet Design by Marcel
We introduce to another amazeballs friend of ours, Design by Marcel. Marcel is also from Tulbagh (like Anli) and he is literally the king of foraging. We are so lucky to have him educate our students on responsible foraging and also for sharing some of his favourite (and oh so funny) foraging adventures.
Day 3 is all about the installations. We cover certain mechanics that you would mostly use when doing large installations. Here we only focussed on arch, growing installations and hanging installations. During this session, we love to take a step back and observe our students. It is really amazing to see how they’ve grown in only 3 days, hearing them laugh and chatting up a storm with their new-found-flower-friends. Have a look at our Pause November 2020 editorial here.
We wish we could share ALL of the beautiful photographs but that is just not possible! A big thank you again to all of our students who trusted us with their hearts and their hard earned cabbage. We feel blessed to know you and we look forward to see where your creativity leads you.
