Spring Flower Workshop #1

£220.00

Ephemeral Dance

First the silky green tips of spring unfurl, then light, bright and clear blooms pop against the dark soil. Fresh blossoms and buds bring renewed vitality and creativity to our floral designs.

Together we’ll harvest bulbs and gather blossoms in the orchards. Dancing acid green foliage and sweeping sorbet colours run through the flower fields invigorate our senses.

Like throwing the windows open after a long winter, we work with energy and ingenuity in this stimulating workshop.

Do you see beauty in a crooked stem?

Join us if...

You are a traditionally trained florist who is ready to explore a new way of working, and keen to discover the real difference between commercially produced and naturally home grown flowers.

You are starting out as a grower or English cut-flower designer and would like to improve your skills and confidence.

You feel the lure of mindfully roaming and picking in our field-garden and woodland, before returning to explore your creativity as you experiment with texture, layer and context in your floral designs.

Join us if you are simply ready to let your creativity run wild. There is so much to experience in one day, so let go of perfectionist ideals and set yourself free to experiment and create.
