Floral Design 2 at Toronto Botanical Garden
I finished Classic Design Fundamentals Two class at Toronto Botanical Garden this month! Same as Fundamental One Class, every Monday night from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Total of 4 classes, and you’ll learn one design each class, so here they are:
Class 1: Vertical Line Design
Container is not great, I am not suppose to use a glass container, but this is the only container that’s tall enough. When I was shopping for the flowers, I thought blue chrysanthemum is quite rare and special, but only found out that they are dyed when I opened them up during class. A lot of friends like the color scheme of this piece though, I guess something different?
Class 2: Hand Tied Bouquet
This one is very fun. It’s actually a lot harder than it looks. I am glad it turns out pretty good.
Class 3: Hogarth Curve
Found this container at thrift store for 2.99; then went to florist for blue/orange complimentary color scheme. I become more confident with my color choices now! It’s a little bit hard to use cedar for S shape though.
Class 4: Asymmetrical Triangular Mass Design
This one is interesting too. As much as I want to make it asymmetrical, I think it still turns out pretty symmetrical. I guess my eyes and my mind just prefer symmetrical things.
After 8 classes of floral design, I find that I am much more comfortable at selecting color scheme and flower materials now. It’s a much easier way to apply the color theory in floral arrangement than in interior decoration. As for flower selection, I find that Loblaws has great choices at affordable prices, and they are actually cheaper than Chinese florist.
