How will I be taught?
Each design will be demonstrated by the tutor prior to commencement of the practical session with assistance provided by the tutor on a 1:1 basis as required. Various ideas will be shown for using vases as well as aspects relating to the care and conditioning of the plant materials used. At the end of the session the group will come together to review and assess the completed work.
