I am really pleased to announce a series of workshop dates for Autumn winter, todays blog post is about my October table centre workshop. I always like a platform to start designing from rather than just a generic “Learn to hand tie a bouquet”  This is because when I like to start making something I look for inspiration first, from magazines to art to the internet.  This class is going to take the pictures of Dutch still lives as a beginning and an amazing autumnal table centre will be the end!   Not only that I will be working alongside the awesome photographer Nina Petchey from  who will take a picture of your design as a keepsy 🙂

What a don’t want from this class is anyone to feel like this is high brow, if you have ever met me you know I am certainly not that 🙂  It about making something beautiful you can put on your table.

This workshop is suitable for complete beginners to budding florists.
This class will use the Golden Age of flower still life as a starting point to inspire your own masterpiece!  We will look through pictures over a hot drink and biscuits for ideas.  Then I will demonstrate how to make your own table centre in the loose opulent style immortalised in oils. There will be buckets full of  the best flowers and foliages of autumn, think turning leaves fruits, dahlias, rosehips berries, fading roses and hydrangeas.  Once you have finished your table centre we will move it into a setting for a professional picture to be taken. The staging will be set with typical props of the period and lit to create a professional image of your masterpiece! The super lovely Nina from Bells And Bows Photography will take a professional photograph which will be emailed out to you.
