Workshops and Courses with Blue Shed Flowers
Introducing the Blue Shed Flower Sessions
This year (restrictions allowing) we hope to run a series of half day workshops designed to fill you with the joy of flowers! With an emphasis on seasonal flowers and incorporating wild and hedgerow elements, these relaxed monthly sessions will inspire you to grow and arrange and generally get creative with flowers….
I’ve always been convinced about the therapeutic nature of growing and working/playing with natural materials and being in nature – there is now a huge amount of empirical evidence to back this up. So if you want to immerse yourself in all things flowery following what’s been - let’s face it - a pretty difficult year, come and join me for Blue Shed Sessions...
Each session will consist of a walk around the field to see what’s flowering – there’ll be flowery talk about combinations, choosing a colour palette, and technical tips about growing, picking, conditioning and vase life. We’ll follow this with a creative session of making …and of course there’ll be tea and cake!
Book all four sessions for £140 or pick and choose which sessions to attend – individual sessions £40. Gift vouchers available.
Places are limited to ensure safety and individual attention.
