7 – 10pm
This 3-hour evening Vase Arrangement workshop run by Flowers by Louise will demystify the art of flower arranging which will have your friends asking “Where did you buy that?”
How much thought do you put into flower arranging when you receive a lovely floral gift? Surely you just find a large enough vase, pop the flowers in and add the water?
You may be surprised when I tell you that there’s a little bit more to it than that – especially if you want your vase arrangement to last longer than a day or two. This floral workshop will take the mystery out of how to create a great looking arrangement. Wherever you buy your flowers, whether a florist, supermarket or even a quick treat bunch from the local garage, it’s important to know how to make the best of them through careful arrangement and choosing the appropriate vase for the size of the bouquet or the bunch. You could even use flowers from your garden and enjoy bringing the outdoors inside.
Flowers by Louise classes are open to anyone – beginner or those more experienced with flower arranging.
You’ll choose from a range of pretty vases and seasonal stems and be encouraged to unleash your inner floral creativity as you let your personality shine through into your bespoke vase arrangement which is yours to take home.
Following a glass of delicious French fizz to get your creative juices flowing, you’ll follow a step-by-step demonstration and have an opportunity to find out more about the flowers you are working with.
