Creating a Grand Scale Arrangement: a Design-Construct Demonstration
Saturday, March 23, 10am-12pm
Mahonia Studio, 822 E. Market St 40206
Street parking available
Full, lavish arrangements to enhance foyers, entrance halls, altars, banquet tables, etc are always popular items.
Join fellow participants and Mahonia’s lead designer, Mike Ojeda, for a demonstration of how a dramatic, large-scale arrangement in an urn and a tabletop low centerpiece are designed and constructed. Arrangements will focus on the use of readily available materials, such as garden foliage, flora from local markets, and surprise elements in-between.
Instructor: Mike Ojeda
Mike joined Mahonia Studio in 2016, and currently leads their floral program as lead designer, and floral coordinator. With a background in photography and design that spans beyond just floral work, Ojeda continues to apply non-floral concepts to his practice as an exercise of experimentation. His work pulls inspiration from nature and the organic movement in growth; the altered use of materials and method, as seen in the Japanese practice of Ikebana; and the work of masters, and contemporary makers throughout the visual art, fashion, and music world.
