In April two members of the Karori Floral Art Club went to Floral Art Society New Zealand workshops in Auckland. They were working on designs which reflect new trends in f loral art. Nowadays, not everyone has access to flowers from their own gardens. “And buying them can be very expensive,” says club president Cheryl Harrison. “So often, there are not a lot of flowers in designs. Flower

arranging is now incorporating arts and crafts to add interest and to ref lect changing lifestyles,” she says. Cheryl says the club now has workshops at their monthly meetings where they work with many mediums as members design and create both traditional and modern floral designs. She says their club is friendly a nd non- comp et it ive, w it h members preferring to share k n owl e d ge a n d ex p e r t i s e , though there are opportunities with in the Wellington a rea

groups to compete. “Being affiliated to Floral Art Society of New Zealand means that we can learn and share our knowledge, see demonstrations and attend workshops, some of which are daytime activities,” Cheryl says . Karori Floral Art Club meetings are held in St Ninians chu rch ha l l on t he se cond We d nesd ay of e a ch mont h from February to November at 7.30 pm a nd Cher yl says they welcome visitors who are interested in their work.
