If you'd like to try your hand at decorating big spaces with flowers, then come and take over Trill Farm's 16th Century Manor Barn with us! With its high rafters and stone walls, it's the perfect space in which to experiment with techniques such as garland-making, floral hoops and table decorations for long trestles. We'll spend the first morning out foraging (bring your wellies) around Trill Farm. Zanna and Kate will show you how to cut and condition a wonderful selection of hedgerow treasures, so that we can use what we find to create the arrangements. Flowers and foliage will also be provided, all grown locally. We will then demonstrate various techniques, and you get to choose which installation you'll work on. The second day will end with a celebration drink, to which your friends and family are invited, to admire your hard work in situ!

Suitable for beginners and professionals alike. Feel free to bring your favourite pair of secateurs and gloves or just turn up and use ours.
