Step By Step Floral Design Techniques

Technique is what you fall back on when you run out of inspiration.

Rudolph Nureyev

How You Can Make Your Floral Designs Stand Out Even If You’ve Never Tried These Techniques Before

Do you look at images or real designs and wonder how on earth they were held together? Or how a particular effect is achieved in a floral design you admire?

Over the years, I have watched videos, read books, seen demonstrations and workshops, always thinking I’ll remember what I was making or learning.

Then what happens?

Life takes over, of course. So it might be months or even years before I think of a particular way of manipulating foliage or covering a vial and then……..try as I might I can’t find the video again or I can’t quite get the technique right.

To simplify this process for you, there is now one place you can visit, time and time again, right here. Continuously updated with new techniques or tips for the mechanics side of your designs, you will find step by step instructions and images (sometimes video as well) for a wide range of the “technical” side of floral design and flower arranging.

All you need to do is click on either the image or text below it so you can start using these techniques for your floral creations.

I test all techniques before including them here – the images/video are taken during my testing.
