It was a delight to welcome Gill McGregor back to BFAS on a cold winter’s night but by the end of the evening and her ‘Spring Fever’ presentation we were really anticipating a change in the weather and the Season!
Due to the weather, Gill had struggled to source lots of traditional Spring flowers . She used carnations, orchids, avalanche and ecuador roses, delphiniums, gerbera, chrysanthemums, strelitzia and daffodils (to name a few!) together with a wide variety of foliage. Throughout the presentation she showed lots of techniques especially leaf manipulation and she demonstrated tubing, coning, grouping and plaiting – there was something for everyone to learn – from our experienced arrangers to our brand new members. By the end of the evening the stage looked colourful, inviting and full of impact.
Throughout the evening we were also entertained by her experiences in Singapore and we do hope she gets to Hawaii ! Thank you Gill for a delightful evening and for allowing us to share a picture of one of your designs.
