In November members enjoyed a super demonstration given by Sarah and Leigh.
They had made noodles and used them in a very creative contemporary way as the gallery of photos below show.
As you can see by one of the photos Sarah is able to multitask very well, by that we mean notice Sarah’s baby in his cocoon on Mum’s back. A budding floral designer with no doubt.
Enjoy the photos.

Members enjoyed a swap impose workshop on June 10th. The workshop consisted of members bringing along a container and all the “ingredients” to make a floral design. They then swapped the “ingredients” with their neighbour and produced a design using the neighbours materials.
See below a gallery of the fantastic designs produced.
