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.
Zoe and Tanya met a few years back on Instagram and since, they have bonded over their love of spectacular florals. This relationship provided the perfect opportunity for a truly unique workshop experience; a very special and rare opportunity to learn within an intimate, supported & inspiring environment where the attendees could forage a vast array of fresh florals.Read More
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I recently travelled to the Skagit Valley, WA in the USA to be part of Team Floret. What an honour it was to help teach an incredible group of eager to learn, flower loving souls!
(This is my second year as part of the team, and third time visiting Floret - I was an attendee in 2015 at the Wildflowers Workshop).
