Ariella Chezar is widely regarded as the florist who pioneered unstructured floral design into the modern age, during a time of tight round roses. Arellia is also well known for her hands-on flower workshops at FlowerSchool New York. We have a lot to thank this woman and her bold signature designs for!
In her first book, The Flower Workshop, Chezar walks you through the nuts and bolts of creating a variety of small flourishes, tonal arrangements, branch arrangements, handheld bouquets, wreaths, garlands, grand gestures, and more—all accompanied by detailed photography. Chezar offers advice and philosophy on everything from texture and colour, to foliage and containers, providing an overall approach to living and working with flowers. And all with an eye toward fresh, local, wild, and seasonally influenced floral design.
This book not only provides step-by-step instructions for more than 45 stunning floral projects from simple to spectacular, but also equips readers with the skills to customize arrangements at home. Whether hosting a party, helping out with a friend’s wedding, or wanting to incorporate the beauty of flowers into everyday life, The Flower Workshop allows anyone to create dazzling arrangements that go beyond merely pretty, and into realms of the dramatic, the unexpected, and sometimes even the magical.
