The Hamlyn Complete Flower Arranging Course by Sue Philips
This guide to the art of flower arranging incorporates more than 200 original decorative floral features - many with step-by-step illustrations. Containers, materials and the fundamental techniques are explored with guidance on how to create special effects and achieve the right balance of focus, scale and colour for every sort of situation and occasion. A wide range of materials is demonstrated from foliage to fruit, and from fresh-cut flowers to dried flowers. Practical guidance on cutting, drying, conditioning and positioning is included.
