TOPIC

Floral Designs for the Holiday Season

Hetty Shurtleff is originally from Holland where the love for flowers is in everybody’s genes. 25 years ago, she started growing roses and still belongs to the Santa Barbara Rose Society and the Ventura County Rose Society, where she learned how to arrange roses for the American Rose Society rose shows.
Realizing how much she still had to learn, she attended workshops in rose arranging from Fair Friends of Ventura Roses, began taking flower-arranging lessons at the local college, and joined the local Santa Barbara flower arrangement club Las Floralias. Her insatiable desire to further her education, Hetty attended numerous workshops including a 3-day workshop in San Francisco by the Organization of Floral Art Designers (OFAD).
That's when she discovered her passion for ikebana, and for the past 5 years, Hetty has gone to great length to obtain her teaching Sogetsu ikebana certificate. She also became a member of the San Fernando Valley Sogetsu group, a branch of the Ikebana International Los Angeles chapter. 
After her beloved teacher at the local college passed away, Hetty, upon request, agreed to take over his arrangement classes for a few years. She now teaches privately, keeps current on the latest flower arranging trends, and hopes to soon teach ikebana locally as well.
More recently, Hetty has returned to her passion for gardening and maintains a cutting garden with annuals that she uses for floral arrangements.
During daily walks with her two dogs, Hetty makes sure to pick up the many wonderful treasures that come her way, which then find their way into her arrangements - it's a most wonderful way to connect with nature.
In a live presentation, Hetty will show us, how to create several beautiful and unique floral arrangements for the Holiday Season.
