Elaine Stonor was the demonstrator at our club meeting on Wednesday 19th February.
Elaine arranged flowers entitled “Flowers on Vacation” She started her demonstration with packing to go away. She used an old leather holdall that she had rescued from a skip. She used golden sunflowers and yellow gerberas to represent sunrise and sunset.
Next was a design depicting Elaine’s recent holiday in the Canadian Rockies. The container looked like a canoe with a figure of an Inuksuk man used by native Inuit people as sign posts. The design had 2 halves, one red and one white with red tulips and white roses separated by the figure.
A third design was a frame made from wires and covered with moss and muscari bulbs which served a frame for a textured hand-tied design from Holland.
A Mexican sunset had a large piece of driftwood attached and used flowers of tropical colours. An oriental design had large Mitsomata sticks caging a green cymbidium orchid. Finally arrangements in a mug and a teapot said “Home from the holidays”.
Our competition title was “Foreign Delights”. There were 13 entries in total all showing off the talents of our members.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 18th March when Sophie O’Keefe will be demonstrating flowers entitled “For the Love of it”. Visitors are very welcome.
Due to the ongoing lockdown caused by the corona virus, the April, May and June meetings are cancelled.
