Do you have a container that you:
a) Love to use?
b) Find challenging to use?
c) Need to use?
Our One Container, Five Elements course might be just what you need - and it starts next month, on 9 February.
For each practical task in the course, you design and create an arrangement of your choice using the same container. Each time the focus is on a specific element of design, so throughout the course we get to explore line, colour, texture, form and space, while also (as ever) balancing all the elements and principles of floral design to achieve a successful and harmonious result. We have found that spotlighting one element at a time really increases our awareness of just how interrelated the elements are - so it's full of challenges that can be both exciting and frustrating.
Participants in the program work at their own level of experience - the aim is to grow as an individual designer, not to compete against other participants. It was wonderful to watch the amazing variety of struggles, successes and growth in our last course. I personally found the 'texture' task very provocative - it made me think in new ways, to consider texture from different perspectives, and it increased my skill base which will be useful for future projects. We never stop learning.
We begin the course by analysing our containers via five elements. For each task we respond to the elements as we have identified them in our container and create a design that either contrasts against or expands upon what we have found.
For the course examples, I used containers that I already on hand and techniques that I already knew. I might use the next course as an excuse to buy a new container!
One Container, Five Elements starts in February and runs until 25 May. It includes 6 online meetings or recordings (your choice) and five practical tasks, with three weeks between each.
