MARINA ALTA COSTA BLANCA FLORAL CLUB
Our final demonstration before our summer break is with a club favourite David Thomson. David was last with us in November 2021 and by popular demand is making a return visit on Thursday 25 May and his title is “Spring into Summer”.
David's involvement in the flower world was triggered by his after-school delivery job in a prestigious Glasgow flower shop. Taking up a career in the legal profession, David moved to England and began floristry evening classes as a hobby, whilst working as a Property Lawyer in Essex. David decided to expand that hobby and obtained his City and Guilds Floristry qualification at Southwark College in London after which he attended Writtle College near Chelmsford, where he obtained the Society of Floristry ICSF qualification. This led to him teaching evening classes at the College (having also obtained the City and Guilds Adult Teaching Certificate) and it was as a result of this teaching that he first became involved in flower demonstrations.
He became a NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies) Area Demonstrator which took him all over the East of England and beyond and in 2007, became a NAFAS National Demonstrator. Having now given up the Law, David travels extensively around the United Kingdom and abroad, demonstrating and teaching as well as taking part in Flower Arranging Competitions.
David has, in addition, taken on many commercial commissions including the Jewel House at the Tower of London, Kensington Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral and is also well known for his floral wedding artistry.
We meet at The Salon de Actos, La Senieta, Moraira. Our doors open at 2.15pm and the demonstration starts at 3pm. Entrance Members 7€, Visitors 10€. There is plenty of parking in the large free car park. We look forward to seeing you.
