Waihi Leader - - News - By VERA GOVER

Fif­teen flo­ral art mem­bers at­tended the an­nual De­signer of the Year day in Oc­to­ber at the Sal­va­tion Army Hall.

The ti­tle for the day was Mag­i­cal Pat­terns and an abun­dance of gar­den flow­ers adorned the hall.

There were no in­di­vid­ual groups on this oc­ca­sion and all were vy­ing for the ti­tle. It was Vicky Young­man who achieved this award.

The Best use of Colour Award was given to Bar­bara Edling­ton with her de­sign us­ing a apri­cot an­tir­rhinum sur­rounded by apri­cot roses.

The Best use of Leaves Award was given to Jen­nifer Chap­pel and the third prize was given to Liz Franklin. The af­ter­noon work­shop was with Pauline Lux­ton from Mor­rinsville. The chal­lenge was to cre­ate a modern ver­sion of a tra­di­tional Bie­der­meier de­sign. With Pauline’s guid­ance a su­perb se­lec­tion of de­signs were pro­duced by mem­bers.
