This week I was back at the Westwell “pop up” Flower School, which is kindly hosted by Harry the landlord at The Wheel in the heart of the village.
Teaching here is a delight. We have the run of the private dining room, which overlooks the lane to the front of the pub and opens out at the side onto the huge pub garden. Years and years ago I came to The Wheel to play Bat & Trap with some colleagues. It made me smile to see the trap poised by the French doors.
What can you expect?
For those of your who haven’t come to class yet, do you know what to expect? For me, one of the most important things is to set everyone at ease. Last week it was a case up catching up with some flowery friends. If you’ve not met Farah and Jan before you can read their stories here and here.
What do you need to bring?
Sometimes my classes include all the materials you need – from aprons and scissors, through to flowers, greenery and containers. For others, I send out a buying list in the run up to the workshop and you bring exactly what you want. As you can see, the Westwell ladies all chose pink!
What will you learn?
The great thing about coming to class is that there’s always something to learn. As the flowery chat unfolds we discuss hints and tips for getting the most out of your cut flowers and your finished arrangements. After we’re all settled I make a start by showing you how to create the arrangement that we’ll be making. And then it’s over to you. I’m on hand throughout to give as much – or as little – support as you feel you need.
If the ladies at the Westwell Flower School have inspired you, how about joining me at class in Graveney on the first three Wednesdays in June. That’s June 3rd, 10th and 17th.
