OK so I know this should be “wiring technique 3”, but Keith put the wrong number on the video! So we’re stuck with it. I’ll do number three soon…although we might call it number 7 just to really confuse everyone!
Oh get on with the video, I think you’re saying, well this time I’ll show you how to use wires so that you can bend hollow or soft stems to curves and even sharp bends.
I’m sure you’ve tried arranging things like daffodils, anemone and snake grass which, if you try to introduce a curve or more angular bend, will often just kink and flop over. This wiring technique will help you to over come that.
I recently had the privilege to create an arrangement in a beautiful vase made by the very talented ceramic artist, Maggie Zerafa.
If you are on our mailing list you’ll have seen my previous mentions and a couple of photos of my arrangements in her vase, and a mention of her exhibition in Edinburgh. If you are living, working or just visiting the Edinburgh area of Scotland, I recommend you go to see Maggie’s exhibition. On now until 8th April 2017 at:
Birch Tree Gallery,
23A Dundas Street,
