For those who are new to the study of flowers, the glorious yet seemingly infinite variety of colours and designs can seem overwhelming. This two day workshop will help you understand the structure of flowers and the fascinating yet standard ways in which they differ in order to achieve their common purpose – the production of seeds and the perpetuation of the species. The course will also give you an insight into how floral design helps to group our plants into an internationally recognised classification system which in turn provides us with the means to identify and name them. You will be encouraged to observe closely in order to wonder and enquire at the intricacy of floral design. This course is suitable for beginners as well as those who know many plants but don’t know why they do!
