Area Online Events
An autumn programme of Zoom workshops is being planned as follows. Workshops provide an opportunity to learn and practice. These involve 2 sessions. In the first session the tutor gives a tutorial to demonstrate the design(s), giving valuable teaching advice along the way. Participants are supplied with a materials worksheet listing the sort of things that will be required to do the design. Then the participants are given about a week to prepare their own version of the design. They are asked to take photos, including maybe at various stages, or from different angles, or with different plant material. The photos should be emailed at least 2 days before the review session to the BB&O Photos mailbox including your name and an appropriate subject in the email, eg Spring Surprise Workshop. The photos will be put into an appropriate album in BB&O Photos. Usually one week after the tutorial there will be a a second Zoom session when the tutor will lead a review and discussion about the designs.
Workshop Bountiful Harvest. Suitable for all abilities, this workshop led by Stephanie Cornell will feature interesting autumnal designs. Tutorial on 23rd September and review on 30th September, both at 7.30pm. Please book using Bountiful Harvest Workshop Booking Form Fee for BB&O members is £6, and for non-BB&O members the fee is £8.
Talks provide an opportunity to sit back and listen.
