Flowery Thursdays at Mang Tha Centre

Once a week, armed with armfuls of flowers we make our way from Bangsar South to a less popular part of Pudu for
an afternoon with the Myanmar Refugee women of Mang Tha project – the last few weeks they have been learning flower arranging skills from Brenda, our principal florista.

A few months ago, we got wind that they had been hoping for such training for a long time to use for special events in their communities and when we heard about it, we got in touch with Ariane De, the manager for the centre who promptly sent word to the ladies. Class 1 started with 15 women but every week the numbers are growing. Ariane said that these little moments of happiness matter a great deal to them as their living conditions as hard. As for us, we’re just happy that they are happy! Classes are lots of fun and every week their confidence level improves a tad bit more! Here are scenes from the classes:

By Class2 we were making significant progress.

Do you thrive artistically in order or chaos?

This quote came out of a posting called ‘How to steal like an artist (and 9 things nobody else told me)’ at The backdrop that the quote’s placed on comes from a wedding we worked on last year (more photos from that wedding are in a previous post).

Anyone who’s got a modicum of artistic vibe and have travelled the oft-times confusing and contradictory path of trying to find their own brand of creativity will find value in this quote. Nook Flowers is almost 3 years old and the journey of creating the Nook brand with its distinctive look, feel and identity has been a challenge and a lovely work-in-progress. I for one have a clear preference for order and abhor the muddled waves of interrupted thought that comes from chaos. Although lately I have discovered a knack for calming down chaos quite quickly, so that order can return and work progresses as planned. When all else fails, I carve out 'time-out for thinking' sessions. Figured out what works for you yet?
