NATURE STUDIES: VANCOUVER  a floral arranging workshop and dinner series focusing on deepening our connection to the natural world around us.

Amy Merrick is thrilled to announce a new floral workshop and communal dinner hosted in collaboration with Janaki Larsen and Le Marché St George on Sunday August 28th 2016 in Vancouver, BC. 

Amy will teach both her techniques and philosophy for creating seasonal, effortless flower arrangements using wild and foraged materials found in Vancouver. She will share her experiences working alongside Japan's most celebrated ikebana masters and how those principles of natural floral design shaped how she now works with flowers. Students will gain a new understanding of composition, form and appreciation of the flora of Vancouver and attendees will have the privilege of arranging in Janaki Larsen’s highly sought-after ceramics, which will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the event.

Amy and Janaki will host a simple family-style brunch to conclude the workshop, and attendees will help to decorate our shared table using Amy’s tips gleaned from years of creating magical environments through flowers, ceramics and food. Please join us for a day of creative inspiration, observation and celebration of the bounty of British Columbia’s golden days of summer.
