As part of our Sustainable Floristry Series we’re thrilled to welcome ‘the Queen of the bowl arrangement’ – Sarah Statham of Simply by Arrangement
Here’s what Sarah has to say about creating a beautiful bowl arrangement using a sustainable florist method…
When I first started my small business I was fairly unusual in using all the old fashioned methods, but, Constance Spry was my ‘guru’ and I could see that this was the best way to create the looser, natural style to make arrangements that look like they are still growing. More important than anything though was the fact I just wanted to be kind to the flowers. To cut a flower off from growth in the garden is bad enough, but, to then stick it into choking green foam seemed cruel. I try to get my flowers to live for as long as possible and using clean water, placing them with care and letting them live somewhere cool seems to work.
We’ll start the day with an inspirational tour around the world famous Levens topiary garden and after watching Sarah you’ll have the opportunity to create your own bowl arrangement with us. Rachel and Sarah will be on hand to help and guide you. Using British flowers from Carol Siddorn, another ‘flower queen’ and a commissioned bowl by local ceramicist Rebecca Callis.
