FLORAL design is the passion of 18 individuals who meet at the NG Kerk in Port Shepstone once a month.

As they are constantly looking for ways to improve their skills.

They also attend garden shows and basically any event that has to do with flowers.

The Port Shepstone Floral Art Club, as they call themselves, recently attended The Witness Garden Show in Pietermaritzburg­ for a four-day workshop, facilitated by Mark Pampling.

Pampling is a world renowned floral art designer from Australia and is a world cup competitor, teacher and lecturer in floral art.

“It was very interesting to learn new techniques and methods­ of floral art,” said Sanitha­ Stephen from the club.

She and six club members, attended the workshop.

“Another interesting part to the workshop were the floral demonstrations by two coaches from Port Elizabeth,” she said.

The members also met Tanya­ Visser, a TV presenter on a home and garden show.

Usually the Port Shepstone Floral Art Club holds a display at the garden show, but this year members opted to rather attend the workshop.

“Our club is small, but we would like others, who are interested in floral­ art, to join,” she said.

The club is affiliated to the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies and interacts regularly with floral art clubs throughout KwaZulu- Natal­.
