Stunningly illustrated, this book combines the intricate discipline of floristry with the wonder and opportunity of the classroom. The multi-sensory world of flowers is used as a living textbook to inspire and motivate children right across the curriculum.
Helpful schemes of work give accurate curriculum links as well as colour charts, for the less floral-literate, detailing what is available and at what time of year. The balance between creating something that is a vehicle for teaching and learning and creating something that is beautiful for the soul is intrinsic to this book.
Clever, low cost ideas are mixed with more daring creations. Simple achievable designs mean that everyone will be able to make something to take home and be proud of - whether they are learning about the symbolism of flowers in history, or understanding the relationship between scale and angles in creating something with harmony and form.
The book is littered with clear practical guidance alongside targeted learning objectives whilst maintaining a sense of joy and beauty throughout.
It's a really lovely book!
