Autumn - the deep berry season...

Watch out in your local market for the gorgeous flowers, colours and varieties now available.  It is a time to mix rich deep colours (no more summer vintage), big leaves and berries.

We just love the abundance of berries, from Viburnum to rosehips that you can pick from your own garden.  Mix with the new growth ivy and add some big bloom flowers.  Dry Dahlias, Celosia, Hydrangea or Brassica or even artichokes for a stunning but simple design.

Why not come back to school and try it for yourself!   

Pumpkin delights

Students at a recent autumn workshop took advantage of the "pumpkin patch".  Having removed the insides of the pumpkin they learnt to use floral foam, safely secure a candle and then build the flowers and foliage into a stunning arrangement.
