Join Mark as he uses the Wire Weaving Technique to create structures that can - quite literally - elevate your designs.
In this generously illustrated guide, Mark walks through the process of creating a structure using the wire weaving technique, giving detailed technical information as well as practical advice and factors to consider in creating your woven wire structures.
Popularised over the last three decades by German Master Florist Gregor Lersch, the wire weaving technique is based on basket weaving techniques which originated in ancient times.
Follow the step by step instructions to create your own version of Mark's example design or dive straight into the technique and make it your own.
While other mechanics are often hidden, woven wire structures are usually a visible component of the finished composition.
Use the wire weaving technique to physically elevate designs, experiment with balance, give flexibility to flower placements and impart a floating feeling to designs. It is especially useful in downwardly directed designs.
