Basic Floral Design Course – Gatherer’s Basket

The project for class 8 was a gatherer’s basket design. The object is to create the illusion that one had casually gathered posies from the garden and lain them in basket.

The challenge of this arrangement was to maintain a sense of balance, with all the flowers on one side and stems on the other. This arrangement also illustrates the concept of unity through repetition – the dots on the ribbon are repeated by the baby’s breath filler and the circular carnation heads.
