Looking for a floral design you want to make yourself ?
These floral arrangements were made by our students under instructions of our floral design teachers during real lessons in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy.
The top floral arrangement does not use any vase and any floral foam. This is quite convenient to carry with you and good for a gift to be given to your loved one. Other two designs are a kind of vertical designs made in the glass vase using a soaked floral foam.You can find similar one in your daily life.
The bottom arrangement uses greenery in addition to flowers. Around the root of the arrangement, thin greenery (like bear grass) and also ribbons are used in order to create a decorative accent in this floral design. In order to design and make these kinds of floral decorations, it is necessary to take lessons by joining a floral school or finding an independent flower arrangement instructor who should be well experienced. Although it MAY look easy to make them, learning from a well experience floral artist is quite important.
Some people prefer to a "self-taught" method rather than taking lessons. However in order to avoid for you to form a bad habit and wrong way of arranging, it is highly recommended to depend on an experienced floral arrangement instructor. Once you have earned a reasonable know-how and flower arranging skill, you can enjoy making flower designs anytime you like and stop taking lessons or minimize the frequency of taking lessons if you like.
No matter what kind of skill or art you learn, establishing a solid foundation by earning good basics in the skill is so important. Otherwise you MAY face difficulties for making further improvements or brushing up on your skills. No matter for what kind of purpose you learn floral designs, for hobby or business, you should not be too thrifty when it comes to taking minimal required lessons especially during the stage of establishing basic foundation in your skill and knowledge. In a sense you need to be patient during ramp up stage regardless of the type of skill you want to earn.
