Tuesday, April 21 – Headpieces and Jewelry
When it comes to floral millinery, a design may be lush and vibrant or simple and elegant. The elements used, all add up to a unique floral headpiece design. After fashioning a basic armature that can be bent or shaped, your creativity will be called upon to construct these cascading arrangements. Flowers, striking foliage and bundles of berries compose a picture perfect floral headpiece. The afternoon session will focus on jewelry and you will learn how to make rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
Wednesday, April 22 – Purses & Shoes
A floral purse can be used as a centerpiece, bridal bouquet, or as adornment for the flower girl. Observe the mechanics that are used to create a structure that imitates the elaborate style of couture. Once your base is created, let your imagination run wild with how to cover it: foliage, petals, gilded leaves, feathers or sisal materials. Elegant and gorgeous, fairytale slippers are a striking addition to fashion shows, bridal showers and weddings. Floral shoes can be created from wire structures or using an old shoe as a base that can then be worn! Once the foundation is laid, styles can vary widely depending on your choice of flowers and foliage.
On Wednesday afternoon we will have a photo shoot, sponsored by a professional photographer. Models, dressed in beautiful wedding gowns will model your beautiful designs!
