The Theme : Innovation through Design

Innovation in Design, is being able to turn a simple product, plant material or flower into a design. Exploring the different ways the Product can be put to artistic use, many every day object are looked at for their pacific use. For example, wool for knitting, fan for fanning, parasol for carrying.   Slate with all its fun textures can be incorporated into modern design thinking.  We on this course will be posing the question and exposing you to the challenge to bring the magic out of your mind.

The Innovation can also be associated with colours and new ways to explore challenging these combinations.  Lynda Owen will be demonstrating just this in her tutorial. In contrast Chihiro Hidaka will in Japanese style be innovative with vegetative product.

Barbara Shakespeare will bring her thinking to new commercially available products and the use of flower and foliage shapes maintaining balance with- in the Design of the Container. Today we can see many different shapes and sizes, but how to use them is often difficult.

Geoff Hughes with his abstract thinking will tackle the less obvious of products, using his artist eye through the history of flowers.  Last year students got to explore using two small house bricks two pieces of wood cotton and flower,  the balance factor was extraordinary!


This course caters for students, who would like to challenge something new  in the industry and are aiming to obtain further knowledge of the latest floristry techniques. It doesn't matter if you are a professional or  not, but requires some knowledge of floristry. We welcome everybody who has great  passions for flowers!
