Explore the concept of sustainable floral design while incorporating earth-friendly practices in two autumnal designs that beautifully showcase branches, grasses, and larger flower heads. Join Jane Godshalk AIFD as she discusses sourcing earth-friendly flowers and materials, as well as how to best support the shapes and forms of seasonal flowers and branches using recyclable wire. When creating your arrangements, learn how to craft a wire support system to support a lower table design, as well as a wire structure to hold a tall arrangement of grasses and larger stems.

This course counts as an elective toward the Certificate of Merit in Floral Design.
