It incorporates for example pure parallel design, vertical and horizontal. To master these 3 stages one has to understand how to put them together in a right way. A further element of design is to understand the reasons for using texture in all its various forms and the same applies to the understanding of colour and how to blend and mix theoretically and practically colour combinations. There are also many obscure types of designing and shapes within, for example translucent / transparent and the ways to construct and view these types of designs which can be used and adapted in competition and corporate work. It allows the students to search deeply into their artistic mind, in fact the whole course from the 1st day to the last is a test of the students’ ability to think out of the flower box!

Contemporary Design

Contemporary floral design involves much more than that of current trends. It is the platform for floral designers to excel and experiment in their own thinking. Quite often their thinking is influenced by what they see around them. They feel form and texture, usually contained in fashion accessories. The seasonal trends of generations past and present have normally been inspired by eminent designers, such as Versace. He himself drew his inspiration from fine artists experimenting in neo-classical colours. Of course, for the professional florist /designer working with floral and foliage products, it is imperative that they understand the limitation of the product and by endearing themselves to the material. They are using plant products and create a design from their own image. It is equally important for a floral designer to recognize the latest trends, usually created for the forthcoming season by current fashion designers and or architectural gurus. Each and every one of us that likes flowers and foliage’s has a magic in our minds.

Our designer, Geoffrey Hughes is responsible for this class. It has been his privilege over the years both to design and produce, or to edit industry magazines and more commercially likewise for clients. We at Flower Design of Britain will help you bring out and develop your abilities through our contemporary courses.
