I a-d-o-r-e the romantic, natural style of the floral designs created by Jo Rodwell from Jo Flowers. And in this week’s Florist Friday blog post, I’m thrilled to feature Joanna Millington’s photographs of a 1:1 session, which Jo held recently in Norfolk.
Jo says: “It’s been the most wonderful spring so far for teaching. I’ve met some amazing people on my 1:1 classes and have begun one day and two day options for both experienced floral designers and ‘budding’ florists alike.
The 1:1 featured here is of a two day class with florist Frida. We spent our time together covering table designs, large scale designs, bouquets and buttonholes at botanical artist Carol Lake’s studio in Norwich, where Carol also painted some of the flowers we used throughout the two days.
Having two days to explore…in real depth, how we use structure and form, light and texture, colour and mood, and apply these aesthetic themes along with hardware skills, wire tactics and ingredient choices…really takes the learning on to a new level and is very transformative for a florist’s work.
And having photographer Jo present on the classes is so important as students are provided with their own images of their time with me for their portfolio use.”
Aren’t Frida’s floral designs absolutely stunning?! Thank you so much to the two Jos for all their help in compiling today’s blog post.
