Event description
One of the world's great floral designers helps you make your own Wearable Christmas Couture

About this Event

Have one of the world's great floral designers help you create your own fresh and gorgeous wearable Christmas couture fashion piece (like the one in the photo)!

This festive hands-on workshop will be led by award-winning floral engineer Lea Romanowski, who will have you make a fantastic fascinator from scratch. Lea will have on hand Alberta's best selection of fresh greens, branches and accessories so you can bring home a spectacular addition any of your Christmas party outfits! You will also leave the workshop with a new perspective on how to turn every day items in to incredible works of art.

We supply all materials, but we encourage you to bring your own garden pruners, ribbon scissors or florist knives if you have them. You are also welcome to bring personal touches or baubles from home. Enjoy all of this while being inspired by the thrilling Christmas Couture designs on display throughout Lougheed House.

Lea Romanowski is not a secret agent, but possesses all the resourcefulness and creative ideals that MacGyver was famous for. Lea has always been a creative force, continuously transforming the ordinary into extraordinary through design. In 1999, Lea founded Designing on the Edge, which has since become a recognized brand, if you will, within the industry, and offers a full range of services including structural floral art and major event design and decor.

Her extensive skill set of carpentry, painting, metal work, electrical, and sharp design sense inspired Lea's nickname of MacGyver. Lea is the "fixer" of all things visual, guided by the principle that no task is impossible, you just might need to build the solution...literally!

For the past ten years Lea has been an instructor for the Floral Design Program at The Mount Royal University. As a pioneer of floral design, Lea offers her students knowledge and guidance on the importance of executing an idea flawlessly. Lea states, “I feel revitalized when I am teaching, inspiring future floral designers is rewarding and refreshing.”
