At the shop Miss Pickering, 7 St. Paul's Street, Stamford, PE9 2BE
When you would like to deck the halls with a bit more than boughs of holly….
We shall use the finest locally grown firs and spruces and combine with berries, seed pods, amaryllis and roses.
The morning will start with making one of our classic mixed foliage wreaths. Layers of foliage bound onto a moss base, and decorated with pheasant feathers, seed heads, and beautiful ribbons.
After lunch by the fire at the pub, you will create a long foam free arrangement that can be adapted to work as a table centre or mantle decoration. With free reign of the shop, you can create a bespoke piece tailored to your home decor or personal idea of Christmas. For some this is deep red and velvety amaryllis, and for others the palest of white roses and hellebores.
We will also look at ways of adapting the skills you have learnt to decorate other areas of the home, whether a stair garland, or individual place settings for the big day.
This course is for any ability, free reign of a shop stocked with flowers, tools, refreshments throughout the day and a hearty lunch is included. The only thing you need to bring is enthusiasm, sensible shoes and warm clothing.
You will leave groaning under the weight of your arrangement and door wreath.
Valentine will also be in attendance.......
Please ensure before booking that you are able to attend, as the course is non-refundable.
Gift vouchers are available and can be posted out to be given as a Christmas present.
