weddings and celebrations

If you would like to arrange a free consultation with me for your wedding, celebration or event please send me an email or call me to discuss your needs. I can also advise you on how to do your own wedding flowers and then run a special workshop to help you make all, or some of, the arrangements the day before the wedding. This is really good fun and very rewarding.

bouquets

I can make bouquets to order. If you would like a posy in a jam jar, a bouquet in cellophane and water, or displayed in a Heron Cross jug, please get in touch and let me know what you would like.

The way it works is for you to order your flowers in advance. Then you collect them from my house in Millhouses. Flowers will be available for collection at a mutually convenient time.

workshops

Saturday 28 October from 10.00 to 12.30: All White Hand-tied Learn how to make posies and bouquets by spiralling stems and tying. We will use all white flowers with some green foliage. It is very calming working just with white and the results look classy. We will practice on a posy in a jam jar and then make a large bouquet big enough for a 2-pint kilner jar. For £5.00 extra you can step up and buy a pretty Heron Cross jug to replace the kilner jar.

Saturday 4 November from 10.00 to 12.30: Inspired by the Dutch Masters Make a sumptuous arrangement in a beaten metal bowl. We will hold the flowers in place with chicken wire and create a painterly arrangement full of gorgeous flowers. This looks fantastic, but it is not difficult to make and it is a thoroughly enjoyable morning. One place left

The workshop price includes all the flowers, foliage, sundries, containers and equipment. It also includes tea/coffee, biscuits and a celebratory glass of wine at the end! You will also get a handout about the workshop topic to take away.

Price per person (workshops): £50.00 (£45.00 for repeat bookings): To book your place please email or call me and place your deposit of £20.00.

Custom built workshops

For groups of 3-5 people if the workshop is at my house. Choose your workshop topic from one of the following:
Spectacular round table arrangement using traditional methods (chicken wire instead of floral foam)
Glorious bouquet of grouped flowers presented in water in a Meadowsweet gift bag
Gorgeous hand-tied bouquet presented in a chintzy Heron Cross jug (2-pint) (small price supplement applies for this workshop)
Three pretty hand-tied arrangements presented in lovely decorated jam jars
Do something unusual with supermarket flowers - a mix of contemporary and wild or traditional arrangements
Vintage flowers - use a range of techniques to arrange flowers in a mix of interesting vintage containers

These workshops would be perfect for a birthday, a celebration or a hen party. I can run also workshops for more people in other venues like village halls, your own home, club rooms or community spaces - these tend to be less elaborate than workshops in my house, and they can be cheaper to run. Please contact me to discuss your topic, prices and dates to suit you.
