‘MINIMALISTIC WREATH MAKING AT LOFT’
Spring is in the air! We are moving towards longer and lighter days and the world around us starts to turn back into the green oasis that we’ve been longing for all winter. The change of seasons and the reviving green surroundings was a starting point of the planning of this Minimalistic wreath making workshop hosted by Jennifer Laarman X Blomsterkrans. Learn how to create your own wreath with natural colours and fresh, playful greens that is to be enjoyed for a long time.
In this workshop you learn how to style a typical Blomsterkrans minimalistic willow wreath. We will use beautiful olive branches and lovely smelling eucalyptus. In the process of this wreath making we believe in emphasizing the beauty of simple materials, which is an important lesson that originates from the Japanese Wabi Sabi culture.
The workshop will be held in the new and stylish studio of LOFT in Arnhem, which is the home base of beautiful rooms filled with natural light and authentic details.
About the hosts
Flowerstylist Jennifer Laarman offers contemporary flower concepts with her creative styling studio. Her offerings vary between custom made flower workshops and flower styling for events. She is fully self taught out of pure passion and enthusiasm for flowers. She gets most of her inspiration from nature itself and the latest trends. This results in a combination of graceful and sturdy pierces with fresh flowers and lots of natural materials.
At Blomsterkrans you will find flower wreaths that are a little different from traditional wreaths; they are playful, natural and particularly stylish. Blomsterkrans was founded by Chantana and Bineke, a creative studio that runs an online store with flower wreaths. Together they work on various projects where design and craftsmanship is essential.
Blomsterkrans and Jennifer match perfectly; contemporary, playful and self-taught in the flower business. We have combined forces to offer a unique, creative and above all a fun and informative workshop. You will get a look inside the working methods of these three ladies, how to handle flowers, what the value is of flowers and how you can bring together the seasons in a wreath. With this wreath you bring a pierce of outside into your home.
We couldn’t have found a more appropriate location for this minimalistic wreath making workshop. The new and stylish studio of LOFT is available for day rent and the perfect location for workshops, shoots, meetings and events. Besides being a suitable studio location, LOFT has much more to offer. In the middle of the old city of Arnhem you can also step into the LOFT HOTEL. Or find your favorite Scandinavian brands in one of their two pretty stores. If you’re interested to know more about the LOFT, have a quick peek on their website www.loftloft.nl
About the workshop
Surrounded by the lovely smell of seasonal greens and willow wreaths, Jennifer will show how to layout your own spring wreath. She will talk about different types of greens and various cutting- and arranging techniques. We will also explain the background story of the wreaths. You will learn about the process of during flowers and greens and arranging in the style of Blomsterkrans. The starting point of the workshop is the use of natural materials, in the use of the green material and in the styling of the wreath.
