Practical Magic: The Language of Flowers
Time & Location
About The Event
‘The Language of Flowers’ arose in Victorian times as a codified means through which feelings, desires and dreams were communicated using flowers; it was a movement which arose from roots in 16th emblems and Turkish traditions of Selam. In this class Hannah Sanders will teach the symbolic meanings in this language, sharing history and significance. The class will then make a corsage, a nosegay and some strewing flowers which carry a particular message. Participants will come away with the ability to make meaningful gifts for friends’ birthdays, engagements, and new ventures.
Please bring: your own flower selection, ideally with roses, carnations, geraniums and baby’s breath, florist wire or ribbon, tape and scissors. Optional: Dry rose petals, lavender, rosemary, daisy and dandelion
