Flower arranging classes in the US are seeing a marked increase in popularity with the young.
An article in the New York Times points to an upturn in demand for flower arranging classes and these are being attended by younger women.
In the UK, flower arranging always seems to have the unfortunate stigma of being attended by ladies of a certain age and of producing arrangements that are a little stayed and dated.
However, nothing could be further from the truth and there is a keen interest among younger women to learn how to arrange their home grown or shop bought posy.
With prices set to increase, a bunch of flowers needs to last as long as possible. Classes not only teach you how to create artistic arrangements but will help you get the best from your flowers by showing you how to condition and care for them.
Let us follow the trend of our friends ‘over the pond’ and learn to create stylish and fashionable displays.
Keep a look out in your local paper or college prospectus for night classes in flower arranging or contact your local NAFAS group, who will be only too happy to help.
