Since the announcement of Restriction Movement Order from our home country’s Prime Minister, citizens here knew that it marked a historic moment. One that did not involve any weapons nor was it due to a spark of violence or war. Ironically, it was caused by humans being in close contact with one another. Human just being the social creature that we are; being a community. The Covid Virus has nothing against us human or our race or even our socioeconomic background. Until we can find a way to communicate with it that it might surrender and retreat from invading our space, let us respect this time of being within our home space.

If you are an extrovert reading this, trust me (you are not alone). I’ve come up with a short blog post on the list of things to do at home and most of them may be familiar to you but knowing that we are in this together, familiarity is really what keeps us going.

You are one click away from familiarity!

B.Y.O.J Floral Workshop

May in December’s first eco-friendly floral workshop took place at Strayfolk (a friendly co working space, which stores and sells zero waste products).

B.Y.O.J – bring your own JAR encourages the spirit of upcycling where each students brought a jar from their own home and fill them with sweet florals. We have realized that having natural blooms in your home does bring a positive energy into the space. And having them arranged in a vase or a jar will not only enhance the ambiance of the space, it also promotes a longer life for the florals. We want to encourage more people to arrange their own blooms and to let them know that it is as simple as 1-2-3!

After we the introductory of the different types of blooms we had during class, we moved on to the foundations of creating the arrangement.

Once the foundations were set in place, they could apply them to the different jar types of shapes and sizes. All they needed was to inject their own creativity and style into the arrangement!

Building the shape of the arrangement does not necessarily always has to begin with the foliage. It could also begin with the blooms or something that could build a good support for the other stems subsequently.
The variations in heights of each stems gives the arrangement depth and allows each blooms to have their own space to shine! Love the arrangement on the right, a rustic muted tone to it with details of sprayed Ruscus leaves!
Students’ work. Different jar sizes, with different blooms all unique and beautiful.
