Chilliwack Floral Art Club inviting public to attend annual demonstration

A highly skilled creative floral designer is the feature demonstration at an upcoming Chilliwack Floral Art Club event.

Brenna Quan will be here on Nov. 23, at a ticketed event set up by the club. This is the eleventh year that the club has brought in a national or international demonstrator to promote flower arranging and “Friendship Through Flowers.”

They are inviting the public to join them for the afternoon to enjoy the demonstration, along with club floral displays, and to purchase Christmas table centres, wreaths and greenery, baking for the freezer, containers, floral supplies and more.

Quan draws her inspiration from the extraordinary lines, shapes, textures and colours of nature. She strives to constantly expand her knowledge and creativity, and to explore new techniques and materials. There are also many whimsical notes in her body of work. Her designs have won numerous awards in Canada and the States and drawn praise from her colleagues in the floral profession.

For her demonstration she will be using a variety of containers and unique structures, incorporating west coast foliage and materials, as well as exotic foliage and flowers imported from South America and Hawaii.

Location is the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn on Lickman Road, on Thursday, Nov. 23, at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be obtained from Lynne 604-858-6660, or whitegl@shaw.ca.
