10am - 4pm
This lovely one day workshop includes a visit to the local church to look at the different locations in the church where flowers can be arranged and suitable designs. We look at the most cost effective ways to use flowers and foliage including those that are readily available from your garden. During the day we create a large scale pedestal arrangement as a group, an arrangement for the alter and tied decorations for the pew ends. We also look at the mechanism for attaching flowers inside and outside the church. You take home the alter arrangement and pew end.
If you are a member of your local Church Flower committee or group we offer £10 discount on the full workshop fee (please call 01223 655661 for details). Beginners/limited experience.
Please note that if there is a funeral in the church on the day of the course we may not be able to do a site visit. This has never happened, but we cannot plan for this!

The workshop includes all the flowers, foliage and containers that you need to complete the item(s).
You will also be provided with tools to use during the day. If you wish to purchase tools, we have these available and can be purchased on the day.
We suggest you bring your camera to take photos as a reminder of what you have learnt during the day.
We would recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting wet or dirty (as flowers involve a bit of both!)
