Service Description

Tuesday 8th November at 10am and Tuesday 15th November at 10am The Paper Wildflower - sessions 6 & 7 The foxglove is one of the most striking, tall and stately of all our wildflowers. Heavy bell-shaped flowers with a range of rich colours and beautifully speckled details grow in thick stands from June right through until September. Did you know the foxglove protects its nectar from small pollinators with delicate hairs in the entrance of its flower? They are a rich source of nectar for long tongues insects including bees and butterflies – and in the Americas they attract hummingbirds! The first of the two sessions will teach you colouring techniques and how to create the bell shaped flowers, whilst the second session will focus on buds, leaves - and of course how to put the stems together. This arresting spike of colour will be the dominant focal point in any wildflower arrangement. 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 is delivered in two parts (Tuesday 8th November and Tuesday 15th November), both lasting for 2.5 hours from 10am - 12.30pm. Maximum 12 participants.
