Dan­nevirke flo­ral artists wax creatively

Bush Telegraph - - Property Market - By DAVE MUR­DOCH 138 High Street, Dan­nevirke

There was not much to sug­gest a flo­ral work­shop at the Rawhiti Lodge Hall on Tues­day but a dozen flo­ral artists were hard at work cre­at­ing wax shapes for fu­ture de­signs. In fact the scene looked like a cook­ing class.

Tu­tor Linda Bar­nett supplied spe­cial paraf­fin wax for the chal­lenge which was — to cre­ate wax items to be used in a de­sign the fol­low­ing month.

Each artist had her own idea as to what she wanted and the end re­sults were di­verse. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see next month’s fi­nal de­signs.

Vivi­enne Bell and Joy Charm­ley make bowls from wax.

Yukimi Brown has a tree of wax vials dry­ing for a fu­ture de­sign.

Anne Har­mon pre­serves au­tumn colours in wax.
