Basic Course (Advanced Student Course)

TECHNIQUES

In this course, we will increase fundamental  techniques and knowledge. The basic course is full of original Hana Ami Blumenschule techniques, such as a "Strauss von der Seite gebunden", a natural stem bouquet to be worked out from the side, not from the center. You will learn the Lilian technique, which we use for the frame construction of a bouquet. Enjoy to hear about  the symbolic meaning of the Christmas Star, and work out a little "dwarf" object, which makes you create an original vessel.
