Jihye Shumann Teaches Special Occasion and Holiday Flower Arrangements, Nov. 13

Award-winning floral designer Jihye Shumann will lead a demonstration of three special occasion and holiday arrangements using affordable, easily obtainable materials Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 2 p.m. at the Chatham Community Library.

The purpose of this class is to introduce holiday designs with affordable materials that are easily accessible for people without access to wholesalers. We will do three different designs primarily from three different sources. These sources will be from local gardens, the produce section, and grocery store bouquets. I have attached a picture of one of the designs I thinking about doing. This is for a table centerpiece, and the dimensions are around 17in. long x 8in. wide x 11in. tall.

Jihye Schumann began studying floral design 14 years ago in Seoul, Korea where she won several design competitions. In 2006 she came to the United States to continue her studies in horticulture at Texas A&M. She was awarded membership into AIFD (American Institute of Floral Designers) in 2007. She has given demonstrations at the Texas floral convention, assisted with classes for the Benz School of Floral Design, participated in several design shows, and given various presentations and workshops in floral design. She has worked for Dr. Delphinium in Dallas, Texas, which won National Retail Florist of the Year in 2012 by Florists’ Review Magazine and the Wholesale Florist & Florist Supplier Association. In 2013 she was awarded designer of the year by the Northern Piedmont Florist Association.

The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Chatham Community Library. Free and open to the public. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. Call (919) 545-8084.
