Nature Studies: Vancouver
Amy Merrick is thrilled to announce a new floral workshop and communal dinner hosted in collaboration with Janaki Larsen and Le Marché St George on Saturday August 27th 2016 in Vancouver, British Columbia, from 3pm-7pm.
Amy will teach both her techniques and philosophy for creating seasonal, effortless flower arrangements using wild and foraged materials found in Vancouver. She will share her experiences working alongside Japan's most celebrated ikebana masters and how those principles of natural floral design shaped how she now works with flowers. Students will gain a new understanding of composition, form, and appreciation of the flora of Vancouver and will have the privilege of arranging in Janaki Larsen’s highly sought-after ceramics, which will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the event.
Amy and Janaki will host a simple family-style meal to conclude the workshop, and attendees will help to decorate our shared table using Amy’s tips gleaned from years of creating magical environments through flowers, ceramics and food. Please join us for a day of creative inspiration, natural observation and celebration of the bounty of British Columbia’s golden days of summer.
WHERE: Vancouver, British Columbia. Exact location TBD and will be emailed to each registrant upon payment.
WHEN: August 27, 3 pm to 7 pm.
INVESTMENT: $165. Includes flowers and meal. Janaki Larsen ceramics will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the event. Payment by VISA, MC, or cash will be accepted.
