About the event
Get into the festive spirit & away from the busy hustle of the every day & join me in this beautiful atmospheric church to make a seasonal garland for your Christmas table or fireplace. Working alongside festive carols you will attach fresh weave locally gathered evergreens, berries, cones, seedheads to create your own unique garland. I start off the session with a brief demonstration & then it's over to you to get flowering & work at your own pace. I am always on hand to help or advise you if you need it.
The workshops are suitable for complete beginners, or those who have some floristry skills but just want to spend a few hours doing the flowers with lovely people, or for those wanting to learn more eco-friendly floristry techniques if perhaps you have always used floral foam (Oasis). I should mention here that all my designs are created without using foam and I use British/locally grown foliage & flowers which are very natural & slightly wild, grown without pesticides or chemicals & a great source of food for pollinators. I use an abundance of natural materials and embrace imperfections.
It's a very friendly atmosphere and fine to come on your own.
The workshop makes a thoughtful gift for someone, & you can also buy Gift Vouchers that can be redeemed against any workshop.
You will need your woollies on-wrap up well as although the church has heating it can still be chilly. There is a toilet . There is no designated parking so please park on the street in the village, get dropped off/collected if this is an option & car share where possible.
As the materials will have been chosen and selected for the class the place is non refundable or transferable but if you cannot attend you are welcome to send someone in your place. The workshop needs a minimum of 6 people to run & will be cancelled if this number is not met. If the church is needed by the vicar I may have to cancel the workshop. In both circumstances you will receive a full refund.
The workshop includes all materials and of course your creation is yours to take home to enjoy & admire (along with any spare cake!). You may want to bring a pair of gardening gloves and an old towel to protect your car.
