We are thrilled to welcome The Garden Gate Flower Company to our studio for the second in our series of collaborative workshops.

The Workshop:

If Cezanne was let loose in the flower garden what would he create? Paul Cezanne is still the master of colour. Between 1897 and 1906 he explored still life with fruit, flowers and fabrics.  Building depth and volume with planes of colour he evokes the heat and warmth of Provençale summers, its light and timbre.  It’s this we want to capture in our late summer collaborative flower class with the rich colours of late blooming roses, dahlias and early autumn fruit.

We will start with a still life session.  Guiding you through the process of making a beautiful bowl arrangement, made by Leach Pottery, St Ives in collaboration with The Garden Gate Flower Company.  Leach’s early 20th century aesthetic compliments Cezanne’s style perfectly. These will be yours to take home, full with your floral creations.

After lunch we will demonstrate a wedding bouquet and describe our creative process from concepts and inspirations to the mechanics and finishing touches.  We hope to echo Cezanne’s use of colour and volume and encourage you to think about flowers, colour and light in new and creative ways.

We will set up styling areas inspired by Cezanne’s still life paintings and discuss styling, photography, using social media and getting editorial.  Bring your camera as this is the opportunity to photograph your work, to play with flowers and experiment with styling, in ways we don’t often have time for in our busy everyday lives.

In this class we hope to transport you back in time to the dusty heat of late summer in the south of France, to slow the pace a little and take to time to play, create and share ideas and inspirations.

Both arrangements will be taught by The Garden Gate Flower Company and The Flower Appreciation society, simultaneously so that you learn their different styles and approaches

The Teachers:
