Back to Workshops
As part of the preparation of the National Design Diploma candidates, the teachers arranged a morning to show and explain to us the different designs through the ages.  What an interesting and informative morning as we were shown not only the designs of a particular period but also given insight into the types of flowers, foliage, accessories and containers used  as well as the fashion, home decor and architecture.  The teachers each put a lot of time and effort into their preparation and also brought books of reference for us as well.  Thank you to each one of you.
