Past classes have included –
- Cutting and conditioning garden flowers for arranging
- Arranging into vases
- Centrepiece bowl arrangements
- Bud vase collection for a mantelpiece or table
- Large urns
- Hand tied bouquets and posies
Bring your own to work with or Anna can supply vessels for the class.
All classes begin with welcoming refreshments, savoury and sweet platters and a tour of the plots.
As well as flowers being ready cut and conditioned for arranging, guests also roam the gardens to cut their own stems. Cutting plants correctly to promote new growth together with preparing stems for arranging is covered in the class.
We discuss participants own gardens for cutting opportunities and explore garden style arranging. The session is relaxed and about exploring ideas, colours, shape and texture, our own creativity and eye for pleasing arrangements. The process is as rewarding as the final work.
Participants take their work home together with lots more flowers to play with at home afterwards together.
I’m looking forward to welcoming you to the gardens and enjoying a wonderful class together.
