Art of flower power

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

AWARD-win­ning florists from Kala­munda will share their botan­i­cal ar­rang­ing skills in a se­ries of work­shops open to the pub­lic.

Wild Sea­sons Flow­ers owner Maria Hart said there was in­creas­ing in­ter­est from peo­ple to learn flo­ral ar­rang­ing.

“I saw a gap in the in­dus­try to of­fer peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to learn how to pro­duce a range of flo­ral cre­ations in the Hills with­out trav­el­ling to the city,” she said.

“It is some­what of a lost skill, as peo­ple don’t have the same gar­dens as gen­er­a­tions gone by and ev­ery­body is busier these days.

“But there is such beauty and joy in hav­ing flow­ers in the home and peo­ple are re­dis­cov­er­ing that.”

Mrs Hart said the work­shops were ideal for ev­ery­one from be­gin­ners to en­thu­si­asts.

“This month we will be host­ing a work­shop to guide peo­ple through each stage of de­sign­ing their own wild­flower arrangement us­ing Aus­tralian na­tives and South African na­tives,” she said.

“Also on this month is an Art with Flow­ers work­shop with Faire & Co to give peo­ple the chance to paint a beau­ti­fully cu­rated flo­ral arrangement.

“Faire & Co is an inspiring space to paint and there will be beau­ti­ful bou­quets as in­spi­ra­tion.”

Mrs Hart said next month the work­shops would have a Christ­mas in July theme.

“The work­shop will show you how to con­struct your own hand­made Christ­mas wreath, as well as work­shops on how to cre­ate a gor­geous Christ­mas ta­ble cen­tre,” she said.
