week four of the night class

This was the forth design the class had to do last week.It was nice to use some delphinium and we used them at there full height. Two fox tail lilies came out to one side, two Anastasia and three cerise Gerber's. I wanted to keep the foliage to a minimum so just used fatsia and a few salal leaves which covered the dish up well. I knotted some china grass to give a different shape and a few pieces of looped steel grass. Everybody liked this design. some people had clear vases so i gave a few suggestions to make them a bit more interesting. If you crush clear cellophane and fill with water it looks like crushed ice, coloured sisal, layers of sand or pebbles, vertical twigs or lots of cut pieces of twigs, circles of grasses or you could add food colouring to water. Using a dish with oasis that sits on top of the vase leaves the vase empty for you to do these things and experiment.
