I love teaching workshops at Jolie Rose in Faversham. The owner, Sally Lambert is so welcoming. She appears out of her tiny kitchen to greet each of my guests with a cup of tea served in vintage china and leaves a plate of delicious biscuits on the table for us to delve into. By day Sally’s shop is home to vintage treasures, with a homespun style and by night it feels very special to be allowed to roam in private.
The evening started with a goodie bag packed with golden ranunculus, soft pink tulips and fragrant eucalyptus, with knobbly twigs for contrast.
And it finished with a design that matched the personality of my guests.
I always advise that it’s best to have a towel and bucket in the car for safe transportation home. Even with this precaution there were a few casualties. Despite this, I had some lovely feedback from Susan who said “thank you for such a lovely evening of flower arranging. I did enjoy watching your demonstrations and then trying out my own creations.”
Another of my ladies said “I enjoyed the evening, thank you. The time went very quickly; it was a pleasant low key learning curve. My display is still looking lovely and I also made up a vase with the spare flowers I took home.”
Perhaps you’d like to join me next time?
Until next time, happy flowers! Julie
