ILLUME II Autumn 2018

Illume workshop 2018 photographer by Lana Ivanova. 

With a mix of blushing garden blooms and dynamic tropicals, Tanya of Oh Flora showcased methods of creating abundant bridal bouquets and an overflowing arch installation using a variety of techniques. Attendees were greeted with an array of textures, botanicals, and foliages as they watched Tanya demonstrate her methods for creating a trailing and full bridal bouquet. They then indulged in their own floral creations with the help of the Oh Flora team. 
Attendees were gifted with hand-woven seagrass totes filled with goodies.

After the attendees finished their beautiful creations, we paused for botanical eats and drinks along with business discussion led by Tanya. 

Using a variety of techniques, attendees watched as Tanya created the base for the tropical installation. Soon after they joined right in, adding their creative touch to the arch. We finished the arch with a blushing carnation garland and trailing florals. The result? - like something from a sun-kissed island in the tropics.

Thanks to our gorgeous photographer, to songbird silk for the lovely hand made silk ribbons, and to Comber Street Studios for the incredible light filled studio space:
