Ikebana tips #15: wiring techniques 4

Categories: Tags:

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.
