ECO Freehand Eco-Floral Vase Arrangement Techniques – one of our Eco-Floral series. This course explores different practical mechanics and sustainable techniques to arrange flowers in different forms of vases without the use of flower foam or Kenzan (also known as frog pins). Going completely foam free as we strive to minimize our carbon footprint and impact on the environment whilst still creating beautiful floral table arrangements.
Through a total of 12 different design interpretations, techniques using chicken wire, twine, twigs and foliage framework to create a reusable and sustainable floral mechanism in which we will arrange seasonal flowers in. Methods taught throughout the course will be done so in a as sustainable way as possible.
Suitable for floristry beginners or those wanting to expand and grow their floristry skills. Perfect for those who enjoy having fresh flowers at home. This course focuses on practical skills, techniques taught can then be interpreted into everyday flower arrangements with different design styles: European Country style, Modern Natural style or explore further in our NUFLEUR Contemporary Minimalistic series.
Remarks: This course teaches 12 practical techniques for freehand vase designs, while our NF series focuses on further exploring various practical foamfree skills to create contemporary design. The techniques taught in these two courses are different, NF further elaborates the use of foamfree methods in modern contemporary design. The skills taught in ECO will not be included in the NF course. Students can attend NF courses after completing ECO.
We recommend students to have some experience from EFA Modern European Flower Arrangement in order to grasp the concepts better and thus be able to nurture your own creativity.
Interactive learning approach – Our classes are fun, informative, friendly and relaxed. We will present students with a handout covering the design topic of each class, packed with detailed conceptual and technical points, botanical names of the flowers and foliages used in both English & Chinese, sketches and sample photos to assist learning. Following a step-by-step method to ensure students develop the necessary applicable techniques and skills.
Guided by our experienced instructors every step of the way with feedback as you focus on the building blocks of the craft and establishing a strong foundation of floral know-how.
Everything you make is yours to take home – which will be another learning opportunity to observe different flowers and foliages’ full character and vase life.
