Class #100
The Immersive Floral Design
Instructor: Dr. Solomon Leong AIFD, CFD
With Support From: Platinum Elite Partners Florists’ Review and FTD
We think of floral design not as an image or a final product, but an ever-evolving creative process, an immersive experience. Focusing on creating designs that envelope and interact with our sense of smell, touch and even taste, this workshop aims to bring human senses back to the forefront of floral design. Through careful curation of contrasting texture forms and above all, fragrance, we will create a structured floral design that one can literally immerse and be encapsulated in the world of flowers.
