The Flower Club ~ grow, gather & curate
WEDNESDAY OR SATURDAY OPTION - 10am - 1pm
April - September ~ 6 sessions, choose between full membership or one off taster sessions
Whether you're a novice or a keen gardener, Liz and the flower team will share her years of experience and expertise in the world of floriculture and flower farming, so you can become confident in growing and arranging your own cut flowers from your garden throughout the growing season.
We will meet once a month starting from April to September, we will wander the fields discussing the changes and challenges of what needs to be done in that month and then we will go back to the flower studio for tea and cake while you watch a flower arranging demonstration using sustainable mechanics.
Once the meeting is over, you can then go back out into the field with your bucket & snips, select and cut your blooms to take home to practice.
Each month's session will be as different as the seasons themselves, not only will you be learning how to condition flowers and floristry skills, you can take notes and pick up tips on what to grow and keep your cutting patch productive.
For some sessions we will also come together as a group and create large installations and really let our creativity go wild!
Refreshments will be served; locally baked cakes and biscuits along side tea & coffee to keep you fuelled and energised.
The meetings are intended to be fun, relaxed and be a sociable gathering of enthusiasts that will use this time to chat, make friends and feel part of a group of like minded people who share the love of flowers.
Sessions will probably last around 3hrs
If you would like a taster session or know you can't make all 6 sessions, then you can book individual dates when suits.. you can choose more than one! I'm afraid if you are unable to make it, it's non refundable, but you can use that ticket for another date. The 'flower pack' (see in membership details below) wont be available, but we will supply everything you need while you're here. You will still be able to pick flowers after the session to take home and practice with, but please bring your own bucket.
