夏のクラスは7月12日からスタート - The Summer term starts on 12th July 2012!

With low heavy clouds, it does not look like SUMMER at all in London... How have you been? Wimbledon is over, Hampton Court Flower show has gone now, and now we are waiting for the Olympic/Paralympic to arrive.

Anyway, at LivingSeasons, the weekly classes is starting from 12th Jule 2012. Time and premises are the same as always.

        Vegetative Round Arrangement

When you feel like making a natural-looking design, this is very useful. You are going to use grouping technique here. This is Michiko's design.  

        Vegetative Up-Right design

With the same principle as above, but apply it to an Up-Right shape here. Maybe you can see a bit of JAPANESE influence here...?

こちらは佳奈子さんによる作品です。This is Kanako's design.

        Front-Facing Hand-Tied

Hand-Tied design has several styles, indeed. This time, we are making Front-Facing one, which would be suitable for stage and presentation.

こちらは恵さんによる作品です。This is Megumi's design.

        Vase arrangement in Front-Facing style

Vase Arrangements has also several styles. This one would be quite useful for your own house/room.


On the previous term, we made Modern Corsages, which you can see its mechanics. In this term, we are taking rather traditional way of making Corsages.

On this Summer Term, the agendas are here to push your general skills up. It would widen your design skill, too. They might look simple and basic, but they are useful, indeed.

いっぽう、これまでクラスに足を向けていただくチャンスを逃していらした方には、基礎の基礎から一緒に始めて行きましょう。丸い形のラウンドアレンジ、三角形 の三方見のアレンジ、基本の花束の作り方、花瓶を使ったアレンジの作り方、そして基礎コースのまとめとなる三日月型のアレンジと進んでいきます。
On Basic Class, the menu is Round, Front Facing, Hand-Tied, Vase arrangement and Crescent design. Let's create some beautiful designs with your own flowers.

If you are interested in Flowers/creating your own Flower Arrangements, please come along to the class to see what is going on.It really does not matter if you do not have any experience at all!

イギリスを象徴するようなバラ。その季節はそろそろ終盤を迎えるのですが、夏を盛りとする花はまだまだ沢山あります。庭だけでなく花市場やスーパーの店先で も、旬の、しかも国内産の花が沢山出回っています。ちょっとお値打ちで、そのうえ花持ちもちょっと長いように感じます。


Roses in gardens are almost finishing, but there are more to Summer flowers! Seasonal flowers are always more reasonable and last longer. With those wonderful seasonal flowers, you can make your room HOME.

Looking forward to seeing you in the class!
