Have you noticed the beauty of the flowers and trees in your local area or garden? Have you ever wondered how joyous it might be to bring a slice of that natural decoration into your home? “But having vases of seasonal flowers all year round will cost the earth!” I hear you cry. If you order big bouquets from florists who import their ingredients, then yes, both our environment and your bank balance will pay the price. However, beautifully curated floristry designs don’t need to be an expensive, unsustainable luxury. Throughout the year there are abundant natural materials on our doorsteps to be celebrated and enjoyed while respecting and nurturing our surroundings. All you need is a bit of knowledge on what to look for and how to treat it. Come along to our hands-on foraged floristry sessions and learn all you need to know to create gorgeous, high-quality seasonal designs to decorate your home or treat your friends and family.
Please note: These workshops require you to bring your own foraged materials. Ideas of what to cut and gather will be sent out 1 week before each session to keep our designs fresh and seasonal. All other equipment is provided. Children are welcome with a paying adult and the taproom is dog friendly! The bar will be open for delicious alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.
