Day Four: April 15, 2011

Another whirlwind day! We started with a shopping excursion to the local floral wholesale company. We hunted for all the interesting materials we had seen in our classes -- wool, bark covered containers, test tubes and treasures.

We were treated to a tour of Poelman and DeWilde shop in Melle. Their shop was filled with beautiful and unusual flowers and plants. They created many intriguing floral displays for our group -- tulips wrapped in kiwi vine, hanging callas, and a Eucharistic candle with eggs. We made our own arrangements using wool, ribbons, bamboo pieces and phaleonopsis orchids.

Lunch at an old home and then we were on our way via train from Antwerp to Amsterdam. We had a free evening to explore the neighborhood of our Hotel Jan Luyken.
