Dried Wreaths: Elegant + Wild Digital Class
This listing is for video-only access to this workshop. Please note that materials are not included.
In this premium workshop, we are exploring the elegant + wild art of floral design. We have teamed up with amazing floral designer and artist Natalie Gill of Native Poppy to teach us how to create dried floral wreaths for every occasion and season. Whether your taste is more asymmetrical or that of a full and classic design, we will learn it all under Natalie’s expert guidance. With just a few techniques and skills covered in our digital tutorial, you’ll be able to create one-of-a-kind, uniquely designed wreaths to fit any style. And the best part? This art form is so versatile and flexible, Natalie gives us the confidence and skills to get wild and create beautifully elegant wreaths with any combination of purchased, handcrafted or found elements for both asymmetrical and full wreaths, using a wire frame and a grape vine frame.
We’ll learn all about the design principles that go into wreath making: layering and depth, volume and height, and the secret to making loose and natural looking wreaths. Natalie walks us through how to layer the textures and elements with whatever materials you have access to in your part of the world. One of Natalie’s favorite things about this craft is that you can set perfection aside and have the freedom to be messy and imprecise in your process. Native Poppy is all about seeing floral design as a natural garden and modeling your creations off of what you would find in nature: florals and botanicals don’t naturally grow evenly or perfectly line up. Allow your designs and elements to be a little untamed with uneven lengths for a wild and elegant creation. Natalie likes to think of wreath design like modeling clay — you can shape your elements and ingredients into whatever you want.
