Service Description

Tuesday 18th October at 10am The Paper Wildflower - session 4 Dandelions are the brightest, most cheerful and ubiquitous of our wildflowers. They are cunning little plants which like to grow taller than we see them – when they get mown down, they grow back lower in an attempt to avoid the next trim! Traditional, dandelion has been used as a healing remedy, to treat liver, gall bladder and kidney complaints. It can also be used in salads and to make a delicious wine! Dandelions are a favourite of many pollinators and no wild flower class would be complete without them. Hawkweed is the dandelion's taller, leggier cousin, equally bright but slightly more elegant! The class will teach you two techniques to make these flowers, which can be used as a cheerful filler in your wildflower arrangement or a cheerful little presence on its own in a bud vase. If you attend additional classes in the Paper Wildflower series you will work towards creating your own arrangement of an array of wildflowers including bindweed, foxgloves and asters. If you choose to purchase the full course please head to ‘The Paper Wildflower Course’. Over the course of 8 paper flower sessions plus the paper dyeing session you will learn how to make an array of flowers to build your own paper flower arrangement. Sessions can be purchased individually or as a course. If you purchase the course you will also get the paper dyeing course included at no extra cost (with a choice of dates). All materials and refreshments will be provided. This course lasts for 2.5 hours from 10am - 12.30pm. Maximum 12 participants.
