Dried Flower Designs with Bex Partridge
On this episode of the Team Flower Podcast, Bex Partridge of Botanical Tales joins Kelly to talk about all things dried flowers! Bex is walking us through the detailed processes of drying flowers and her favorite flowers to grow for drying.
We are chatting about why and how florists should utilize dried blooms. Bex is also describing how she makes her stunning wreaths and shares a few tips on designing with dried flowers.
Bex, the founder of Botanical Tales, is a nature-loving creative who predominately works with dried flowers in her practice. Having recently quit her corporate job to dive nose-first into her creative business, she has been writing about and working with dried flowers for a number of years. Having spent many years working an office job, she knows firsthand the importance of staying close to nature, and Botanical Tales was born out of a desire to find an antidote to the fast paced, corporate world she was once so entrenched in. Bex runs creative workshops where she teaches people how to dry flowers make beautiful wreaths and dried flower displays, she sells her own dried flower art, as well as writes for her blog and for a number of independent magazines, always accompanied by beautiful photography. You can see her lovely creations at her website and on her Instagram @botanical_tales.
