One & Two Day Workshops

One & Two Day Workshops

Fresh Spring Florals

Spring is a wonderful time of year, where colour erupts and Mother Nature gets busy, giving us new life and new energy. There's expectation in the the air and hope for what lies ahead. And it's also a fabulous time for flowers. Fresh pastel shades and lime greens dominate the palette amongst a multitude of stems and foliage.

We celebrate the season with this one day workshop that teaches those with a passion for flowers, all about the artistry of floral design and creation. The day begins with a short exploration of design theory, followed by two individual flower projects, that you will take home to marvel at afterwards. Each project incompasses different techniques, using stems of your choosing from a range of flowers.

This course takes place at our atelier, where a light lunch is provided, along with cake and tea. All our workshops are relaxed, informal and fun, to give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the creative process and enjoy this amazing opportunity to design with flowers.

SKILLS LEVEL: Beginner friendly

WORKSHOP DATES:
Friday 16th February - 10am
Saturday 16th March - 10am
