Thursday 13 June, 6.30 – 8pm
The Flower Appreciation Society – ‘not your average florists’!
Anna Day and Ellie Jauncey – the ‘Flower Appreciation Society’ – create natural and wild floral arrangements, using English seasonal flowers wherever possible, and masses of wild foliage. Based in their Hackney workshop, Anna and Ellie make regular early morning trips to the flower market, selecting the freshest flowers.
Their ‘Dalston Flower Show’ workshop at the Garden last week was so popular, that they have very kindly offered to do it again, to allow more people to participate. They will talk about their backgrounds, their three year old business and where they get their flowers from, before teaching participants how to make a small floral arrangement, using all British flowers and foliage. Participants can take their creations home with them.
Places are very limited on the ‘Flower Appreciation Society’ workshop and can be booked in advance at http://flowerappreciationsociety2.eventbrite.co.uk There is a £5.95 charge to cover the cost of all of the fresh flowers.
