The Progress course is a step to awaken your creativity. By creating handmade Manschette and woven mats that require a thorough manual work, and incorporating them into the design, we add complexity and creativity. You will be inspired to work on modern arrangements which are inspired by historical paintings, as well as developing Christmas works with a story. The main focus lies on handicraft, the course is also full with structural items.
By incorporating vine structures, we change the image of a Strauss. Bogen forms, basket bouquets: we will teach you gorgeous variations of bouquets, which will even shine in demonstrations and exhibitions.
You will make a sphere out of slender green and fine flowers, learn how to arrange flowers in the crossing style, and to make a wreath out of fresh flowers on a Sphagnum base. The items technical level is high.
Let's think about the position of the growth point and the density of a natural arrangement. Learn variations in "natural winding style".
Arrangements which confer to classic Dutch & Flemish era style. You will be touched by the history of art, but also by our modern transformations.
Four items with the theme "Rectangle". We train and widen your sense of creativity by incorporating shapes that give a modern impression to flower design.
The crossing lines are running diagonally to the arrangement's base, even go over the edge and into the outside. A Kranz (wreath) is floating high in the air on crossed twigs. The possibilities of flower design are widening.
Learn an asymmetric handtied bouquet and a romantic bouquet, which looks like a flower meadow on a grass bed.
You will study an Advent wreath for the table and Gefässe (vessels in German), made out of natural materials. We also deepen our knowledge of Advent traditions. Easter season will bring a creative nest type arrangement.
