All these floral designs were designed and made by our students under the directions of our instructors during a real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. If you are trained at our school you can earn practical skills to make these kinds of designs. When cutting flower stems for hydration, there are under mentioned three points to which you should pay careful attention.
(1) Clean cut: You need to use a very sharp knife (knife is better than scissors). If it is not sharp, cutting cannot be done smoothly, which causes damages with stems. This will be one of reasons for bacteria to be grown and consequently the life of fresh flowers will be shortened.
(2) Angle cut: When cutting stems, you had better cut with angle so that the area of cut surface can be large. This will cause flowers to be better and more effectively hydrated
(3) In-water cut: When cutting stems, dip the stem and also the blade of knife in the water. Stems should be cut with a blade and stem in the water. This makes hydration more quickly and effectively. Above mentioned 3 ways should be implemented especially during summer season.
Students should learn not only flower arrangements but also how to handle fresh flowers. California Flower Art Academy
