NEXT MEETING: 
Tuesday 4 October 2016 at 7:30pm
A Workshop led by Ann Simpson. This will be aimed towards the Christmas-themed Competition that will be held at the November meeting.

WORKSHOP INSTRUCTIONS AND NOTES:

This workshop is designed to help members to create designs for the November 2016 Practice Night. Inspiration for the titles can be found in the Winter 2015 edition of the Flower Arranger.
 
Beginners: A Cracking Christmas
First thoughts are to include a Christmas cracker. These can be made by the arranger, see page 18 of the Winter 2015 Flower Arranger, OR a large Christmas cracker split in the centre to look as it has been pulled, with flowers and seasonal items coming out of the centre in an explosion of colour.
 
Intermediates: Hippie Christmas
Two obvious interpretations here: Hippie as in Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) or a funky 1970s design with lots of weird  colour combinations
 
Advanced: A Downton Christmas
Opulent, classical designs; candelabra, Christmas trees, lots of sparkle and “bling”
 
Either create a design from your own group or try one from another. Artificial plant material can be used to save money (both in the workshop and in the November competition).
 
Ann will demonstrate a Cracker and a “Hippie” design.
