Floral Art Demonstrations

Mud

Mud!!! Floral Art Demonstration at the Rondebosch Flower Club, Cape Town, South Africa

Many demonstrators distinguish between an “entertaining demonstration” and a “teaching demonstration”. With such a subject specific audience I believe learning is entertaining.

Mud demonstration

When I demonstrate I focus on sharing the art of contemporary floral design, as I see it.

It is ALWAYS an honour to be asked to demonstrate. Your audience took time away from their family/work/busy schedule to see you.

Conversation

For me the great goal is to start a conversation. I work hard to create a demonstration that will challenge the audience to think about their own work.

Demonstration

For my Mud!!! demonstration, I wanted to create a fantasy design that captures the imagination. I wanted to introduce the concept of using growing plants as design elements.

So much goes into one stage design that I thought it would be worthwhile to break up the design elements and explore each in more detail.
