Impact & Answers Using Less

An online program led by Mark Pampling - Four practical tasks and five online meetings 

Design Solutions is an interactive online learning program for those Florists, Floral Artists and Floral Designs who want to grow their floral skills. The course concentrates on understanding and applying design knowledge.  It involves making 4 designs and then participating in live online discussions relating to the designs (or watching recorded discussions later).  Tasks are spaced out over approximately a 10 week period and encourage individual expression, creativity and resourcefulness.

Material choices for each task are restricted - you are guided to use fewer varieties of plant materials – working with less in order to build your ability to answer your own design issues and create floral designs with more impact. You create and photograph your compositions.  The images are collated and shared in the online meetings and are discussed with reference to various design principles.  These evaluations are structured to be supportive and constructive.  The goal is for you to finish with a sense of satisfaction and a feeling of increased design confidence.

Design Solutions evolved from a previous Flower Thinking program (Design Discipline) based on valued feedback from previous participants. We have kept the core of the previous course while expanding the approach to material choices.
