Winner of the NSWFAA sponsored Most Innovative Design at Newcastle Regional Show 2015. The Class title “From the Mountains to the Sea” – Kim Baillie
January saw the commencement of the first full year programme for this new group after some introductory sessions last year.
At our first meeting we explored mechanics and ways to avoid using floral foam in designs as well as reviewing the Show Schedule requirements for one of our local agricultural Shows.
February’s meeting looked at Modern designs to help members prepare for Newcastle Regional Show and next month we will be looking at what the Easter Show has on offer.
Our new meeting venue, Toronto Workers Club, is proving very successful and I thank members of the Toronto Garden Club for their continued support as well.
Here are our meeting dates for 2015 – all meetings commence at 2.30pm:
Monday 19th January Monday 23rd February Monday 23rd March
Monday 20th April Monday 25th May Monday 29th June
Monday 27th July Monday 24th August Monday 28th September
Monday 26th October Monday 23rd November No meeting in December
At each meeting we focus on a particular floral design style with a demonstration followed by practical hands on workshop. At some meetings we will also discuss competition requirements for upcoming Agricultural and Flower Shows.
Our programme for 2015 will be available in mid December (2014!) – let me know if you need a copy sent to you.
