Weaved European Bouquet Class..........
If it didn't you would have to weed a 150' row before being able to leave the farm.
Here Eden is giving a demonstration of the technique starting with a bit of greenery to help get the design going. She has all her elements stripped of extra foliage and layed out, waiting to be added.
Eden is giving support as students put their bouquets together.
One trick is to not hold that bouquet too tight. You must keep your hand somewhat loose so that material can be added. It gets easier after a good amount of flowers have been added but that first part can feel a bit awkward.
These guys have got it, they are dutifully weaving in from the top and deciding where there is a "hole" and filling it. Notice the loose hand and the nicely spraying stems at the bottom.
