A Seasonal Handtied Bouquet
Thursday 29th August – 10am-12.30pm
Join us at the gallery for a relaxed morning learning the art of the handtied bouquet.
Led by expert local florist, Oonagh Langrishe, you will be guided through the process of creating your own handtied floral arrangement using seasonal blooms and foliage supplied by our friends at Black Shed Flower Farm. Oonagh will share advice about how to choose the best materials for the look you want and also how to care for your cut flowers at home. This style of bouquet was originally developed by florists as a method of quickly producing attractive, self-supporting arrangements and is a technique you can use time and again with flowers and foliage from your own garden.
This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those more experienced but who may want to try something different. To make the most of the morning, we've kept the class size small so early booking is recommended.
The course will run from 10am to 12.30pm on Thursday 29th August. Teas, coffee and delicious cakes provided. Your finished arrangement will be yours to take home.
Included in the course: tuition, refreshments and a wide selection of blooms, foliage and materials to create a generous handtied bouquet.
This course has limited numbers and will run at Elementum Gallery, Sherborne, Dorset. Sherborne is easily accessible by public transport or by car.
Once your booking is confirmed we will email you with full booking T&Cs and further details.
About your tutor:
Oonagh Langrishe set up The English Florist in 2012 and a couple of years later opened a studio in Stalbridge situated on the Dorset/Somerset border where she designs and creates bespoke floral arrangements for events across the South of England. Inspired by the abundant mixed borders of our wonderful English gardens she specialises in using English varieties such as scented garden roses and fantastic fluffy peonies as, in her opinion, nothing beats their subtlety of colour and glorious scent.
