Floral designers join forces to launch Coffs Coast art group

INTERNATIONALLY recognised floral designers and friends Judith Little and Cecily Rogers will join forces for a floral art and design afternoon to launch a Coffs Coast floral art group at the Botanic Garden in Coffs Harbour on Sunday August 7.

Judith is based at Maclean and Cecily is based in Sydney but the two have worked together on major floral art pieces both in Australia and overseas.

Judith won the major $5000 floral art prize at Sydney's Royal Easter Show in April with a dramatic design piece which appeared suspended in mid-air.

She will travel to Barbados next year to take part in the 2017 World Show.

Judith and Cecily placed third in the World Show in Boston in 2014 for their two-metre creation with inverted proportions on the theme of Storm.

Cecily is President of the NSW Royal Horticultural Society as well as a floral designer; judge and TAFE teacher.

"I use any plant material to express ideas based on design," Judith said

"It could be bark or roots - at my level no one cares what I like personally, it is all about the elements of design."

The afternoon will run from 1-4pm on August 7 and will be held in the Botanic Garden's function room. The event is free, no bookings are required and all interested people are invited to attend.
