Summer Fun with Flowers!
Jo Purdy presents: Summer Fun with Flowers!
We're running a great new 6-week course, beginning next month, that will show people the fun of flower arranging as we approach the summer period
Under the expert guidance of award-winning Jo Purdy, you will learn how to choose and look after flowers and prepare them for arranging, how to use foliage from the garden and hedgerows, how to use different containers to create different styles of arrangements including modern, traditional and vintage
Get the most out of supermarket flowes and make fantastic, professional-looking, arrangements to display around your house!
This course runs for 6 weeks and starts on Tuesday 12th May (2pm to 4pm each week) - click on Flower Arranging for more details!
Come and Spend a day being creative!
We know a lot of you are unable to come to our Saturday full-day workshops as you work at the weekend
We've therefore decided to put on a monthly Craft Day every month on a Monday so that you can come along (10am to 3pm) and have a full day being creative
With Chrissy guiding you all the way you could makeover a piece of furniture, decoupage an object (maybe a mirror or a bathroom cabinet) or even spend the day learning how to make a mosaic - the choice is yours!
The cost is £40 for the full day plus a £5 charge to cover all the materials you will use. The next monthly Craft Day is on Monday 11th May 2015
If you'd like to come along ring us on 01723 859060 or you can
