2013 Floristry Workshops at Bay Tree Cottage …Flower Arranging for Every Occasion and Every Ability!
This year we are delighted to welcome Amanda Punter from The Lavender Shed, a NAFAS Trainee Area Demonstrator and freelance florist to run a series of Floristry Workshops at Bay Tree Cottage.
Together we have developed a series of workshops to run throughout the year embracing all types of floristry work, teaching you how to design and create beautiful arrangements and accessories for every occasion, without going to flower arranging school or costing a fortune!
All of the workshops are designed to offer a fun combination of demonstration and theory with lots of hands-on practice! And at every session, with all materials and flowers provided, you will make at least one arrangement or accessory to take home with you.
