About the event
Join me for a few hours of escapism in a calm and relaxed astmostphere away from the busy hustle of every day life. Celebrate the festive seasons and connect to nature by weaving foraged evergreens, cones, seedheads and berries onto a large natural vine base. I start off by giving you a brief demonstration of the technique then it's over to you to create something unique and personal. I have a beautiful selection of hand dyed velvet ribbons in festive colours from Little Acorn Silks to add the finishing touch. Should you bear to take it down after the holidays, your wreath is fully compostable (or you can leave it to dry out and fade gracefully).
I am always on hand to help or advise you if you need it. The workshop is 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.
The workshop usually lasts around 2 hours & all materials are provided including refreshments but you may want to bring a pair of gardening gloves for wet moss and prickly foliage, wrap up warm and bring an old towel to protect your car as your wreath will be damp.
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. In these circumstances you will receive a full refund.
