After being a course leader and lecturer in Horticulture at Nottingham Trent University for nearly 20 years I am now working on a new venture in Limousin, France. In our plant nursery and garden school we aim to carry on sharing our passion for horticulture and natural crafts.
Specialist subjects include plant science, propagation, plant identification, specialist traditional and modern pruning and maintenance techniques. We also teach greenwood crafts, weaving, stained glass art and other crafts using natural materials.
Learn how to create flower sculptures out of chicken wire for the garden. These beautiful harebell (or maybe Dierama flowers) are made over a full day workshop that includes the materials to make three flowers on a spike (height approximately 1. 2 metres).
Thursday 29th October 2020 10.00-4.30 – cost; 55€ per person.
We are able to serve refreshments (tea/coffee/cold drinks) but you will need to bring a packed lunch.
THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED PLEASE GET IN TOUCH USING THE CONTACT FORM BELOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS WORKSHOP AT A LATER DATE
Places are limited so please get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the page if you would like to book a place.
Chicken wire is fairly malleable and easy to bend using pliers but does require a little strength and dexterity, plus a little patience to make a large or complex sculpture. This workshop is suitable for beginners – we will assist anyone who requires a little help to complete their flowers.
