Join us in the beautiful setting of Mayfield Flower farm in Ayrshire for an informal workshop on creating spiral handties. This is a versatile technique which can be used to present flowers as a gift, or used as a simple way to arrange flowers in a vase or jug. This workshop will appeal to people who have their own garden flowers and want to make the most of them as well as floral fans who are looking for some special seasonal flowers to work with. Each month’s workshop materials will be different reflecting the seasonal changes in our Scottish grown flowers.
We will start the day with a tour of the gardens discussing the best flowers to cut and how to condition them for vase life. If you like to use flowers from your own garden and want to know the secrets to success this is the ideal opportunity to ask questions. We will then use the spiral handtie technique to make a small jam jar arrangement. After lunch we move on to using this technique on a larger scale in a handtied bouquet, finishing with everyone gift wrapping their bouquet in water to take home.
No previous floristry experience is required and all tools and flowers are provided to make both arrangements http://www.mayfieldflowers.co.uk/
Price includes light vegetarian lunch, refreshments and your wrapped bouquet and small arrangement to take home. The small group size (maximum 8) ensures you have plenty of time to practise, ask questions and enjoy the day.
