We started our working session with an official opening in the private and formal manner. Organisers, students and speakers were honoured by Mr Anton Revutskii – Charge d’Affaires a.i., Embassy of Russia in Malaysia welcome speech. Mr Revutskii noted the importance of building firm and fruitful relationships between Malaysia and the Russian Federation through training programs and experience exchange. The parting wishes were followed by presenting a souvenir catalogue of the most distinguished projects of Russian Décor and Flower school.
The theory training session had been officially launched. The first speaker Peter Zakharov - Moscow Flower School teacher of decor production started his lecture from "The review of basic decorative materials and techniques " along with the demonstration of materials samples thereby bringing in a genuine astonishment of some type of materials which were used for the décor production however had never been known by the audience. Take oracal, polysterol, HIPS etc, for example, practical and great sign decorative materials.
The interactive part became very versatile with the demo of banner pulling techniques, vinyl sheet and plotter letter cut pasting on plywood, plastic and vinyl, making a sign with LED illumination etc. Midsummer Events shared their interaction with local vendors and production pipeline required to render the project.
The afternoon session taking over by Maxim Zakharov The "Urban Waterfall" workshop idea presentation shed light on the final installation result. The next lecture about "Floral arrangements fundamentals" broadened student’s horizon and knowledge about modern floristry. The group discussed fundamental principles and techniques meant to be used for everyday work and the workshop installation floral setup. Golden Ratio, irregular triangle, ergonomics, grouping, roughness etc – the bulk of essential theory was covered to bring the understanding of an aesthetically great floral art.
The day was over with pleasant exhaustion with eye-opening material learnt and anticipation to implement that all on the practical session the next day. A number of questions, follow-ups, debates and collective assistance of students to each other to digest every detail of the theory session.
Moving to the Day Two – practice with the installation – work in the field. This is the most thrilling and exciting time for every workshop attendant. The early morning led by Maxim Zakharov with a brief and straight forward instruction and group assignment to process flowers and prepare basic floral appliance – working with floral foam, chicken wire, plastic wrap, floral wire and a variety of professional floral instruments. The noon as a dateline to ensure that “floral troops” would be ready for floristic setup.
The guys and power-driven girls got engaged to setup core for a semi-hanging floral arrangement. The rest were working on podiums finishing and polishing the front look of black glance levels. As more as merrier – the decorative pools were installed, cased with decorative frame, poured with real water, stones and adorned with the first groups of flower masses. The centre floral design was growing slowly and accurately with the use of a “secret” clamping technique of The FlowerBazar headquarter.
Joining technical setup with flowers and greens resulted in an amazing wedding ceremony design which had never been taken a place in Malaysia before. Fresh, stylish, aesthetically perfect and technically literate installation made it’s impression to everyone and was captured with camera for a historical record.
The tired but satisfied mood of certificate ceremony, group photos and casual chat till late were a logic end of the Grand Wedding Décor workshop.
