Hand make something of your own
Over the last few years I've taught flower workshops and noticed that when people get to use flowers, they completely relax. At first, most people are a tad concerned they know nothing about flowers and might kill them with one single touch. But once they work on their project step by step, there's a magical transformation into complete calm.
We have an innate quality within us that's drawn to making something from scratch. A hand made project gives us the chance to put down our phones, slow down, forget the to-do lists and make a flower crown or wreath completely of our own.
Workshops in Brighton this Winter
Christmas Wreath Workshop
In this Christmas wreath workshop I teach you how to bind moss and blue spruce foliage onto a copper wreath hoop frame. I then demonstrate florist wiring techniques to attach pine cones, dried oranges, cotton, cinnamon, dried apple slices and a bit of sparkle onto their wreaths. Then finally I show everyone how to make a big Christmas bow and attach it onto their wreath. The workshop lasts roughly 2 hours but may vary slightly depending on the class size.
The workshop also includes a glass of bubbly and a mince pie.
Please bring gardening gloves if you'd like to wear them as these will not be provided. I'll provide brown paper wrapping so you can carry your wreath home afterwards but please bring a large bag from home if you have one (so we can help the environment that little bit more). Dress warmly as it will be a cold time of year and the shop may not be very warm, but there will be lots of Christmas cheer!
