CHILLIWACK FLORAL ART CLUB
Friendship Through Flowers
The Chilliwack Floral Art Club was founded in 2006. We meet each month except December. The club provides an opportunity to learn an art form using flowers as the canvas. We learn and practice both traditional and contemporary floral designs. Members vary in experience from those who are completely new to some who have several years of experience. Lessons are provided for those who wish them.
Our club activities have included an annual spring show, decorating churches, tours of studios and flower growers and a Christmas Gala each year featuring a wonderful professional designer.

NHS FLORAL DESIGN GROUP OF ST JOHN’S – NEWFOUNDLAND
The Group’s association with the Newfoundland Horticultural Society began in 1966. It has forty plus members that meet the third Tuesday of every month at St David’s Church on Elizabeth Avenue except for July and August. Our meetings often include demonstrations of varying topics by a group member or a guest florist followed by a workshop. Our demonstrations have an educational component on some of the floral design principles and elements. Our members are very enthusiastic to learn and through our workshops we learn from each other with guidance from senior experienced members.
Our Group participates in a spring and summer flower show NL Blooms at The MUN Botanical Gardens along with the Horticultural Society. It is a collaborative effort between the two groups and the shows receive rave reviews from the public.
We celebrate National Flower Arranging Day in May by hosting a Lonely Bouquet Campaign. This is also one of our main group activities giving back to the community as we involve ladies from our local Women’s Centre engaging them in designing over one hundred bouquets which are delivered by volunteers around the city. We also have floral workshops at the centre a few other times during the year.
In November the group decorates the St Johns Commissariat House for Christmas. At our November meeting we make over fifty feet of fresh garlands, over thirty wreaths and multiple centre pieces. Members then volunteer to spend a day decorating the house in the period style of 1800’s. Certainly a great way to start the Christmas season.
We have executive elections every November where we elect a Chair, Co-Chair,Treasurer, Hospitality Host, Secretary and Communicating Secretary. See below for contact information

SINGAPORE FLOWER CLUB
The Club was set up in 1971.
We generally meet every second Friday morning in the month for a workshop/demonstration or flower related activity. Our membership is small, a mixture of expats and Singaporean and ranges from beginners to floral designers. Apart from L & O we are also affiliated to FDSS (Floral designers Society (Singapore).
Membership is open to anybody who is interested in flowers and floral design. Workshop or demonstrations are conducted by our experienced members or by local floral designers and occasionally by visiting overseas floral designers. Guests are always warmly welcome.
If demonstrators/floral art teachers visit Singapore, please let us know in advance. And if you are here long enough to do a demonstration or workshop for us we would be delighted if we could arrange that.
