A Collaboration With Pyrus Botanicals: Sculptural Installation and Vase Arranging


29th August 2018:


We are excited to invite Pyrus to our studio to join us for the first in our series of collaborative workshops.

With backgrounds in fine and applied art, PYRUS are known for creating sculptural forms in their work using unusual foraged botanical material and blooms from their Victorian walled garden.

The Flower Appreciation Society are recognised for their sensitive and distinctive approach to colour which is informed by their textile and illustration training. 

Both florists are also flower growers and passionate advocates of the British flower movement.

The Workshop:

In the morning PYRUS will discuss how they approach sculpture, texture and form in their practise. As a group we will then create a large scale botanical installation with PYRUS guiding us through the process. 

After lunch The Flower Appreciation Society will talk about colour theory and teach how to select, use and combine colour in their vibrant and illustrative style.

Inspired by the practice of both botanical studios, you will spend the rest of the afternoon creating a beautiful seasonal arrangement of your own in a vessel to take home. All four florists will be on hand to guide you through the making process.

The workshop will use only seasonal British blooms and flowers grown in The Flower Appreciation Society cutting garden, celebrating British flowers in high summer when they are at their absolute best.

The workshop will use ‘floral foam free’ techniques.

Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day plus all the flowers and materials that you will need and the vase is yours to keep.
