Description

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else” Georgia O’Keefe

Be immersed in the intelligence of the flowers, and make art. This day workshop will be a bath of beauty, exploration and chance for you to strengthen skills of drawing, observation and intuition whilst having a very personal connection with flowers

What to expect:

  • Learn a creative process that shows you a way to observe, and encounter the meaning, intelligence and medicine of a flower
  • Develop drawing techniques to bring your art work is alive with the character and essence of the flower
  • We’ll will create meaningful hand tied flower bouquets based on the language of flowers discovered as a group or personally by you

Artists are true master gardeners and the flower has been the muse of many famous artists. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of Floriography (the language of flowers) has been practiced in all cultures everywhere. 

Flowers are always present in ceremony and offerings, carrying signatures of healing, medicine and meaning. In the Victorian language of flowers they were used as codes to express emotion – honeysuckle for devotion, azaleas for passion, tulips for the perfect lover – there are many, many more. Also familiar to most of us perhaps is the remedial use of flowers in the essences that were popularly developed by physician Edward Bach. This was actually an ancient Egyptian technique and medicine for the soul – many people, and animals respond almost immediately to these emotional aids.

Materials provided, but please do bring flowers you feel drawn to, as many as you like. We will also work with what is growing at the school.
