The Flower of Love - Flower arranging workshop

Sunday, 10 July 2011 § 0

On Thursday, July 7th our monthly workshop was The Flower of Love - An introduction to floral art.

We had 20 roses attend and Janet from The Secret Garden florist in Roundhay was our tutor for the evening.

We learnt about her career as a florist and how to care for our blooms so they last as long as possible. She showed us how to use the different flowers, leaves and grasses that would feature in our arrangements to make the most of their shapes, sizes and smells.

Janet showing us how to arrange flowers.


Janet had brought a lovely selection of gerberas, so everyone chose their colours and got stuck in. There was matching ribbon too to finish off the piece.

And this is one of the finished arrangements, didn't Sam do well?!

Big thanks to Janet for sharing her talent and passion with us. Visit The Secret Garden website to see more of her beautiful work.
