From Ballet to Blooms
Mark Welford and Stephen Wicks, Bloomsbury Flowers, London, England
Former Royal Ballet dancers Mark Welford and Stephen Wicks of Bloomsbury Flowers have retained their sense of the theatrical in their floristry, whether it’s in small hand-tied bouquets from one of their stylish London shops or in sensational arrangements for interior designer Kit Kemp’s Firmdale Hotels.
Named one of the United Kingdom’s top five florists during British Flowers Week, the duo will share techniques described in their most recent book, Simple Flower Arranging (2014). Come be enthralled with their insights on the parallels between the world of ballet and the world of flowers.
Note: To keep flowers as fresh as possible, the temperature of the Koret Auditorium may be cooler than usual. Please dress accordingly.
