This workshop will invite students to create a living sculpture with florals. We will consider foundational historical styles including Dutch Baroque, Ikebana, and contemporary movements, and experiment with vessel armature techniques such as wire mesh, pin frog, and tape grid. Local and exotic live flowers will be provided to each participant, and after demonstration, arranging, and group discussion, they will take their ephemeral arrangement home. For a full-day making experience, during which you will make a painting of a floral arrangement, sign up for the second part of this workshop, Floral Still Life Painting led by James Brandess!
