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

Summer Workshop: Learn how to fill vintage jugs brimful with summer flowers: Saturday morning 14 July, 10.00-12.30
I have gathered an eclectic mix of vintage jugs for this workshop. Everyone will be able to choose a small jug to practice on and then select a large jug to fill with flowers. We will be cutting and placing stems in the jugs - starting with a foliage base and then adding flowers of different sizes and shapes. Come to this workshop and learn how to make the best of the glorious English flowers available at the height of summer. One place left

Workshop price: £50 (£45 for repeat bookings)
. The price includes all the flowers, foliage, sundries, vintage jugs 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.

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.
