everlastings: how to grow, harvest and create with dried flowers
Everlastings is a celebration of the life of flowers, showcasing the ethereal beauty of dried and preserved flowers, those that are just as fascinating dried as they are fresh. Throughout the book Bex Partridge takes you on a journey, starting with practical advice on how to grow dried flowers, with in-depth descriptions of the many methods available for drying and preserving blooms, seed heads and foliage, before sharing her favorite ways to style with dried flowers in the home.
Everlastings is so much more than a 'how-to' book, with knowledge shared on the ecological benefits of dried flowers, a chapter on foraging which goes to great lengths to show that this kind of flower arranging can be accessible to us all, as well as an inspiring chapter on the meditative benefits of working with dried flowers. The main section of the book features a number of projects to try at home, all accompanied with beautiful photography. Suitable for both those that have never worked with dried flowers before and the seasoned professionals, the projects span many levels of experience. Bex finishes this section by sharing ideas on how to capture the memories and moments of special days, though the gathering and preserving of flowers, to be treasured for years to come. Everlastings encourages the reader to embrace the ebb and flow of the seasons, with seeds sown in spring, producing flowers in the summer to be dried and arranged in the house as a stunning winter display.
Filled with the stunning imagery that Bex has become known for, Everlastings presents a modern take on an age old pastime.
