I attended a flower arranging workshop with Bloomon on Wednesday evening. The workshop took place in The Driver, a gastropub with industrial and vintage touches.
The workshop started by learning tips and tricks on how to care and look after flowers. One of the interesting facts I learnt was adding 2/3 drops of bleach to the water of the vase keeps flowers fresher longer as it keeps the water from getting cloudy and inhibit the growth of bacteria.
I was given a bucket full of flowers and foliage to use for my bouquet, I followed a Bloomon floral stylist step by step to create my arrangement. Using different heights and textures gave the bouquet a wildlife feel which I really liked.
I enjoyed this workshop and look forward to using the techniques I learnt in future floral projects I do.
