Over twenty members enjoyed a busy and challenging day at a workshop led by Gill McGregor. She showed us how to be creative with laurel leaves in two very different designs. A few pictures below of the first arrangement – thank you for a very instructive day Gill
We were delighted to welcome Jo Poulter back to Bedford this month.
Designs featured an arched window, a copper circle, a traditional triangle, a hand tie in a ‘cube’ bag, a traditional triangle, a star and a spiral – a demonstration which certainly lived up to its title ‘All Shapes and Sizes’. There was something for everyone – traditional and contemporary – large and small; and certainly ideas which could easily be adapted to use at home – something which many of our members appreciated.
Flowers included delphiniums, stocks, daffodils, muscari, iris, sunflower heads (with and without the petals), roses, gerberas, chrysanthemums, antirrhinums – we were introduced to a lovely different coloured rose ‘Golden Mustard’. There was just as wide a range of foliage and accessories used.
Jo gave us an interesting commentary throughout with hints and ideas together with entertaining stories. Thank you Jo for a very enjoyable evening. There are just a couple of pictures below.
