Floral Workshop

If the recent downtime has ignited a desire to work with flowers, or you’ve been having a hard time finding relevant resources to up your floristry game, we want to welcome you to our floral cave! 

There is a big gap between what students learn in traditional floral education and what is actually required in real life to create current, practical and contemporary designs. Or you may have attended other one-off workshops and asking yourself "where do I go from here?".

My wish is create an environment where I can bridge this gap and impart some of my best tips and tricks based on my personal experience in this industry.

This is for you if you are a flower lover or aspiring florist who wants to gain confidence in floral artistry and develop your own style simply by implementing our approach to flowers without wasting time figuring it out on your own.

Kicking things off, we are launching 2 foundational courses in August.

 

    Foundation 1

    Date: 8 August 2020, Saturday
    Time: 1-6pm 
    Venue: 3015 Ubi Road 1, Singapore 408704
    Instructor: Kayly (Founder of BFOR)

    1. Principles of Art & Design
    There are several principles to art and design, and you’ll learn how to apply this into floristry. (Yes, floristry is an art form!) we believe in getting foundations right as it applies to every type of floral arrangement.

    2. Garden Style Vase Centerpiece 
    Put the principles of design in action and create an organic garden style centerpiece in a vase without having to use any aid/mechanics. This will help you to focus on the elements on design and create good foundations.

    3. Organic Hand-tied Bouquet Hack
    It's a challenge to create an organic style hand-tied bouquet and often results in tired and cramped hands. We teach you the trick we use to conquer that and saves time!

    4. Bouquet French Spiral Technique
    Let's talk techniques now! The spiralling method is a traditional bouquet building technique for all types of bouquets. Most people have the misconception that this technique is simple. In fact it is one of the hardest to master, but definitely a good skill to have. 

    5. Wrapping It Up
    Learn how to tie off and wrap your bouquet like a professional florist!
