Floral Crafts on Homo Faber Guide

In this lead-up to Christmas, the Homo Faber Guide edited by Michelangelo Foundation for Creativity and Craftsmanship devotes a special feature to flower designers and their creations for the holidays and seasons. The participating florists are: Gábor Nagy, Emily Avenson, Katya Hutter and sisters Laura and Teresa Cugusi, the duo from Puscina Flowers. Each will present a video tutorial on how to create a step-by-step ornament of choice, from a fireplace wreath to a wreath, from a centerpiece to a bouquet. Online starting Nov. 25 on a weekly basis on Homo Faber's socials: Laura and Teresa Cugusi handcraft a festive wreath using local foliage from their Tuscan farm; Gábor Nagy creates a modern bouquet to give as a gift during the holidays or to brighten up the home; Belgian Emily Avenson, illustrates the steps needed to make a wreath to adorn the fireplace; and Katya Hutter-in the last tutorial in the series-shares her contemporary vision of a festive centerpiece from her studio in Amsterdam. This collaboration is an opportunity to bring floral crafts into the homes of those who would like to try their hand at the tutorials and to experience a creative experience related to the magic of Christmas. www.homofaber.com
