Workshop with Tony Cleaver
"BACK TO BASICS" 
7:30 pm start, doors open 7pm
INSTRUCTIONS:

This workshop is aimed at those members who have no or very little, experience of using pin holders and chicken wire as mechanics. Experienced members please experiment with plant material to show others what is possible by not using floral foam.

We are aiming to complete two designs, one with a pin holder and one with chicken wire. I am bringing pin holders and chicken wire for those who requested them.  Bring your own flower scissors.

YOU NEED TO BRING:

Pin Holder design
Shallow dish of any shape about no less than 1½”/3cm deep
Bunch of Christmas twigs (available in most supermarkets) you won’t need a full bunch so please share
Or about five straight stems of fresh cornus/physacarpus etc longest being about 18”/45cm long.
Bunch of ten gerberas or decent size roses (buy roses on Friday or Saturday so they open up a bit)
About five or six large ivy leaves or small bergenia leaves or fatshedera leaves or small bunch of spotted laurel etc

Mass design using chicken wire
Bowl shape container between about 6” and  8” across top. You can bring larger but will probably need more plant material
Supermarket bunch/bouquet of mixed flowers which will probably include chrysanthemum OR
Bunch of chrysanthemum (five stems)
Short pieces of foliage ie conifer, skimmia, rosemary etc.
You will also use any flowers left over from the previous design ie roses/mini gerbera.
Fir cones/ baubles etc plus barbeque sticks to make it a Christmas design.
Choose your own colour schemes for both designs
