SPRING & SUMMER 2018
At The Old Butchers Shop, Broad Street, Sutton Valence, ME17 3AJ
This year I am offering a few artificial flower workshop dates as well as fresh - see below.
All workshops are fun and informal and open to all - whether you are a complete beginner or have done flowers before (max 4 people).
Fresh flower workshops will be based around flowers and foliage that can be gathered from gardens and hedgerows plus a few extra 'buys'

The basic cost or the workshops (Artificial and Fresh) is £35 per person, which includes basic sundries (oasis, wires, tape and plastic containers) and refreshments. Total numbers will not exceed 4.
Fresh flower workshops- additional charge
You will also be charged the ‘cost price’ of any purchased flowers, foliage and containers from the shop, if you chose one. I will endeavour to gather as much material as possible so avoiding excessive use of expensive flowers.
Artificial flower workshops- additional charge
There is more expense with an artificial workshop – any flowers and containers will be charged to you at a discounted price.
What you need to bring
For fresh workshops, please bring a pair of secateurs or florist scissors if you have them.
If you have any interesting garden foliage, flowers, seed heads or a favourite container, please bring them along.
For artificial workshops, you will really only need a pair of wire cutters if you have them, but you may also want to bring your own container – a favourite jug or bowl.
If you have a group of four interested friends/colleagues but can’t make the published dates, I am happy to offer different days / evenings to suit (other flowers projects allowing).
To register your interest please fill in the form.
