In this demonstration, Debbie will be sharing with you how to create a Hand-Tied Bouquet of roses using a constructed self made frame of trailing Hedera (ivy). This design uses one variety of flower and has a contemporary feel suitable for both a bride or adult bridesmaid. The use of the self made frame acts as a collar or frame around the roses.
During the tutorial, you will gain an insight into the plant materials, equipment, mechanics and techniques involved in creating this design from scratch. Debbie will show you how to put together the design, along with some useful tips and tricks along the way.
You can purchase the ivy from your wholesalers online or locally. Alternatively you can forage the ivy, or use an alternative trailing greenery such as soft ruscus, jasmine, hops, and so on.
