The Instagram Urn
Social Media is full of images of footed containers or urns of all different shapes and sizes. This course will teach you how to confidently create this on trend, overflowing, flowery, seasonal. foam free design.
These are often called the ‘Dutch style’ Urn- so we will explore what this means historically and see how relevant it really is… Is it correct to describe a loose, unstructured container of flowers photographed against a dark background a Dutch style design?
What are Vanities? Memento mori? What was Tulipomania? We will answer all these questions…
Learn how to create this dramatic, asymmetrical, feature design with lots of lovely materials and guidance, using chicken wire and a pin holder as your medium. We will also look at the relevant elements and principles of design to give you some theory…and to help you create recession and depth of field. On the Career Course this design is called the ‘pina colada’ -you will find out why!
This design is great, super flexible. Allowing you to experiment with a looser style, really looking at the form and line of the materials, allowing them to shine – one of my favourites. You will learn how to layer up the design, working with blousy ‘Diva’ flowers, interesting fillers whilst also understanding the structural importance of foliage to create the line..
Course includes all materials, containers and cake and coffee.
Of course you also take your design and container home with you.
