I like my guests to join us in collecting a selection of items that inspire them from our gardens, hedgerows & beach find boxes. Everyone is welcome to bring addition items to recycle & reuse. We put together a table selection of our creative items & I explain about colour, texture & combining items. We also discuss flowers & preservation & adding future items. We select willow & driftwood to begin creating our flower crowns, wreaths & bouquets. I offer 3 easy to achieve methods with wire & string used to help support the structures. Every guest will follow a simple construction method, and can then be helped to add floral decoration as they wish. For this we use a special fabric adhesive tape & work together to secure the creations. Everything created will be unique, shapes maybe larger or smaller, therefore i help guests to create a useful transportation container from old boxes, jars & tins to demonstrate the importance of presentation & sustainability. I like to share ways to recycle & sustain the piece as long as you wish. Ecological & environment concerns are important to us all, bring any seeds to swop! And come & learn the wonders of flower growing as you create!
I would love to share my knowledge of flower crafts with you, & the beauty of my flower cutting garden in coastal cornwall. An experienced teacher in theatre/interior design/decoration/ papier mache/paper making/printing/specialist decoration I have published many books on these subjects.I have always grown flowers & vegetables, now my family host vintage caravan holidays & flower workshop classes from our flower farm by the sea on the North coast of Cornwall, a most special & beautiful place. I hope to inspire you to appreciate & sustain our wonderful part of the world.
All necessary to create.
Our flower farm is in a unique position by Bedruthan Steps beach & Mawgan Porth Bay, in a quiet rural community parish of just a few detached buildings. We have horses, and many other animals. The local walks are exceptional. I try to specialise is native Cornish plants & flowers which means wild flowers are being preserved & encouraged, along with the local wildlife & bees. We offer vintage caravan guest accommodation also in good weather.
