Friendship through Flowers

 

We are a group of keen amateurs with a love for flowers and laughter.

So if you are new to flower arranging or wish to be reinspired come along and join us.

Each month someone leads the demonstration and we all then make our own version, they are always different but always beautiful. If you don't  feel like having a go just come along and watch, you never know you just might catch the bug!

We meet the last thursday of the month at Eversley Community Centre.

Cost is £2.50 which includes tea and biscuits

We welcome new members.

Forthcoming Events -

Thursday, 30 April 2020 - Willow weaving arrangement with Margaret 2.00pm - Eversley Community Centre

I am sending this out early because most of us have plenty of time on our hands and this does take some time.

you will need to soak your sticks and weaving willow fully submerged in water for 2 days to help reduce the risk of splitting.

We will require a piece of log approx 6 inches across. Approximately 8 upright stems of willow/cornus/physocarpus.

Approximately 20 lengths of flexible willow.

Small dish and floral foam or pin holder see photo

Bunch of flowers ie Roses/Iris/tulips/gerbera

Approx 5-7 largish leaves and some fussy foliage for filling

If you don’t have access to weaving material you can use string, wool, ribbon or midelino sticks(well soaked) to create your structure. I have enclosed a photo 

The green and red structure I made a few weeks ago with corpus and winter Jasmine,

Method

Drill 8 holes about 1 inch deep in the back 1/3 of the log (see photo)

Insert upright sticks in holes

cut the thicker end of willow at an angle and insert between 2nd and third uprights leaving a piece sticking out at the back( we will trim this later) start to weave in and out to the end, gently bend around a stick and return going the opposite sides to the first row.

Continue until you get the shape and height you want.

Tie off the ends of the upright sticks with paper covered wire.

For those of you on the WhatsApp group I have uploaded some poor videos of me showing this, so enjoy and laugh at me.

Happy playing
