I love making flower crowns and for the first time am now teaching the various techniques I use to create them. Such a lovely idea for hen parties, birthday parties, a celebratory get-together with friends or a one to one workshop to learn how to make them and go on to make your own for a future special occasion. With so many options to choose from, I am happy to discuss your individual requirements and tailor make a workshop to hold at my home, or yours, a venue of your choice or a choice from a few venues who welcome Floralities' workshops and offer a touch of their own magic (be it a piece of award-winning cake or an incredible view). So whether you'd like to make a whopper of a flower crown or a delicate one, learn detailed skills to fashion your crown or quick methods so the emphasis can remain on fun, have a post workshop mini photoshoot to capture your creation forever or go on to wear your crown after the workshop to a function or celebratory tipple, the decision is all yours.
Prices start at £40 per crowned head
WILLOW HEARTS & WREATHS WITH DRIED HYDRANGEAS WORKSHOPS
This Autumn, I will be running small workshops from my home teaching you how to make a heart or wreath shaped willow frame and go on to decorate it with dried hydrangeas. The workshops will be 2-3 hours long and there will be an opportunity to add fairy lights (optional) to your creation - or bring along a little decoration to add (like the one you can see in the photo - a gift from my daughter) to display or hide if you like - for yourself or to gift to a friend. These wreaths make a wonderful Christmas present and can be sent in the post with careful packaging which I can talk you through. Apart from the date listed below, I am happy to arrange extra workshops for groups of 6. I will also add one or two more workshops if the ones provided below are filled.
