Fresh flowers can brighten even the darkest of days during the Autumn and Winter and are a real treat to have in the home or to see at any building or event. Bay Tree Cottage in Farthingstone, near Towcester, is running several interactive floristry workshops over the coming months for those who would like to know more about how to make a beautiful floral display.
First up on Wednesday 20 September 2017 is ‘Pedestals and Church Flowers’ a half-day workshop where the secrets of creating statement flowers on a budget will be revealed. This is followed by ‘Wedding Flowers’ on Saturday 30 September, a full day where attendees can learn how to create bouquets, posies, buttonholes and corsages in a variety of styles, plus inspirational ideas for pew ends, chair backs and table decorations.
Two evening ‘Flower Arranging for Beginners’ workshops are taking place in October (Tues 3) and December (Wed 6), which are perfect for those that love flowers, but just don’t know where to start. Tutor Linda Seabrook will take the fear out of flower arranging and show how to create some fabulous floral creations.
For the green-fingered, ‘A Cutting Garden’ is taking place on Thursday 19 October from 9.30am-12pm where participants can learn how to design and create their own cutting garden so they can grow a glorious selection of flowers for their home.
‘Dinner Party Flowers’ are under the spotlight on Wednesday 1 November from 9.30am-12.30pm where different and simple ways of arranging flowers for a dinner party table will be revealed, including a stunning centre piece, floral napkin rings, a tea light place setting and a beautiful floral candelabra.
The floristry workshops conclude on Friday 15 December with ‘Christmas Flowers,’ a half-day workshop where attendees can learn how to make beautiful festive arrangements for the home using a selection of foliage and flowers and a collection of ribbons and adornments.
Jenny Dicks from Bay Tree Cottage said: “Whether your style is bold and beautiful or understated elegance, come along to one of our floristry workshops and discover the secrets of success!
