Oak Blossom's Floral Workshop
This month's workshop is "ALL ABOUT WREATH BASICS"
What is "ALL ABOUT WREATH BASICS"
"All About Wreath Basics" is a 5 day workshop that will focus on the basic fundamentals of designing a grapevine wreath using silk florals. By the end of this workshop, you will have an understanding of the basic tools needed in floral design, how to make a bow, and how to create your very own wreath.
*This is not the wreath we will be creating, but it will be something similar.
Have you ever seen a beautiful wreath in someone's home or at a store and said to yourself "I wish I could make that"? Well guess what, we are here to show you how! During our 5 day workshop, I will be spending time with you live inside a private Facebook Group. I will be instructing you on the tools and basic fundamentals used in making
a beautiful silk floral wreath on a grapevine base. Don't worry if you are unable to attend the live, you will be able to watch the replay inside the group as often as you would like.
This is what you can expect to learn during the week of the basic workshop...
Day 1 – A DESIGNER’S BASIC TOOLS
One of the best things you can do is to invest in the proper floral design tools and supplies. It is like any professional painter, photographer, seamstress etc. You must have the correct tools and supplies to create with. On day 1, we will discuss the basic tools used in floral design. You will receive a printable PDF with design tool information and where you can purchase each item.
Day 2 – BOWS FOR BEGINNERS
Making a bow is not as hard as it seems. On day 2, we will discuss ribbon, where we purchase it and what kind we use. And we will demonstrate how we make a hand tied bow and a designer bow using a bow making tool.
Day 3 – GRAPEVINE BASES & FLOWER CHOICE
On day 3, we will talk about grapevine bases, how to use them in creating a wreath, how to prepare it before designing and how to attach a hanger. We will talk about focal point flowers, accent flowers and the importance of filler flowers and greenery. We will also touch base on color choice. We will finish off day 3 by showing you how we add greenery to the grapevine base and how we use it as the foundation and how we attach a bow. You will receive a printable PDF on where you can purchase good quality florals.
Day 4 – COMPLETING THE DESIGN
This is where the FUN begins! On day 4, we will demonstrate flower placement and how to properly attach them to the grapevine. We will show you how to finish off and complete the design so that you will be ready to make your own beautiful creation!
Day 5 – LIVE Q & A
Day 5 of our workshop, we will have a live Q&A where you can ask all of your floral design questions on what we covered throughout the week’s training. We will try to answer as many questions as possible.
The cost of the workshop is only $10.00 total for all 5 days!
