The floral design per 1st photo was made by our graduate at the home party. Other two designs were made by our students under the directions of instructor during a lesson in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. No matter whether you enjoy floral arrangement for hobby or business, you can make it anywhere and anytime you like as far as you have following materials:
A. Fresh flowers
C. Floral Foam
No matter where you go, you can find a local floral shop where you can buy flowers, container (vase) and floral foam
("Oasis"). Floral foam is not heavy at all before it is soaked. How about a container (vase). You don't need to buy an expensive stuff. Just buy a container made from plastic material which is very affordable and also not heavy at all compared with porcelain or glass vase. You can also buy fresh flowers at any floral shop. How about the case where you make Ikebana arrangement that uses Kenzan
. Those items can be bought only at a market/shop that sells Ikebana related items and quite frankly speaking it MIGHT be a little bit difficult to find such a shop.
You can bring a Kenzan which is very very small and no problem to carry with you.
How about Suiban. Also you can carry it easily because the one made from plastic material is extremely light and it is a shallow and almost flat container which is not difficult to carry.
As far as fresh flowers are concerned, you can find anywhere you go. Also as for other materials/items, you can buy them locally no matter where you go OR just bring them with you when you drive or fly to the destination. Unlike swimming hobby, you never have difficulties to find the place to enjoy. Unlike playing golf, you don't have to carry heavy and big stuff with you. Just like a hobby of reading books, you can enjoy floral designs anywhere you like.
How about the case where you make bouquets etc that does not use floral foam and container. No problem at all. Such arrangement uses flower wires, pins and tapes etc. All these stuff are very very light and small in size. It is not difficult at all to carry them with you. As mentioned above, you can enjoy making flower arrangement not only at home or office but also anywhere you visit. This is one of advantages as a hobby.
