Workshops

  

In addition to the club nights we run monthly workshops for our members, usually on the second Thursday 7.30 - 9.30 pm. These are held in the community room within the TESCO Gatwick store. The workshops are run by skilled members within our club and we have recently received funding to be able to engage external tutors as well. Whether a newcomer to flower arranging who wants to understand the basics or someone with more advanced skills looking to try out a new technique we can offer workshops designed around your interests.

 


Recent workshops have included:

 

  • Triangular, horizontal and vertical designs, giving guidance on different flower forms, colour choice and visual balance.
  • Leaf manipulation techniques (weaving and plaiting)
  • Covering spheres with stachys leaves
  • Making buttonholes for weddings.
  • Christmas door wreaths

For the more advanced we have one on interpretation of a show schedule and judging.


We do not run accredited courses but depending on demand we can use the workshop evenings to cover what our members request. Pre-booking is essential for the workshops and can be done at up to 2 weeks in advance at the monthly club night. 

  

 

Workshops are held on the second Thursday of each month 7.30-9.30 pm in the Community Room inside the TESCO GATWICK EXTRA store, Reigate Rd, Horley, RH6 0AT. Free parking available. Click here to see the location of Tesco in Google maps.
