Summer Bouquet Class
Embracing all the delights that the wonderful summer season has to offer this seasonal flower workshop we will guide you through how to create your own natural garden style handtied bouquet. The class will take place in the Dinning Room at Beckenham Place, a beautiful Georgian Mansion that overlooks the picturesque Beckenham Place Park. We will start off with conditioning the flowers whilst chatting about the different ingredients we have for you to choose from.
Then Joanne will demonstrate how to create a handtied bouquet using the spiralling technique and you will then create your very own handtied bouquet! Joanne will then show you how to beautifully package your bouquet for you to take home and keep or give to someone as a gift. All materials are included along with useful handouts and the flowers are of course yours to keep a long with a glass of bubbly to enjoy whilst you create! Why not treat yourself to a fun and inspiring afternoon learning a new skill?

Autumn Urn Class
During this seasonal flower workshop we will start the afternoon by taking a walk around the walled garden and soaking in the delights of Autumn whilst we enjoy the picturesque view of Beckenham Place Park. Feeling inspired we will then head back to Beckenham Place, a beautiful Georgian Mansion with views overlooking the Park, where the class will take place. Joanne will demonstrate how to create a natural garden style urn using a foam free technique. We will chat about shape, the different ingredients used and costing your urn for weddings and events. Afterwards you will then create your very own urn, using an array of beautiful seasonal flowers and Autumnal foliages with a variety of textures to choose from. We will then style your urn using props to photograph and discuss how to capture the best images of your work to share on social media.
Our resident Fine Art photographer Claire Graham will also be capturing images of the class throughout the day too. All materials included along with useful handouts for you to take away and the flowers and urn itself are of course yours to keep. A light lunch will also be provided on the day too.
