Craft Workshop: Woodland Inspired Arrangements
20 October 2018, 10:00 - 12:00 ( Add to calendar )
There is an abundance of beautiful items to be found in your local woodland in the autumn. From branches to pine cones to freshly fallen leaves, they can all be used to create fabulous decorations for your home.
Join us for a morning with qualified florist and nature lover, Viv Withers, to learn the skills needed to create an abundance of different types of decorations inspired by woodland. She will take you on a short walk through Nower Wood collecting natural pieces to be used in a display of your choice. Viv will also bring along other items which will inlcude fresh flowers that can be included within your creation.
This is sure to be an innovative and enjoyable session.
Please bring gardening gloves, a small basket for collecting woodland items and secateurs. You will also need to wear sturdy walking boots on the day.
