A day of floral play & botanical painting hosted by Grace May and Rosie Harbottle. A chance to meet like minded people, nurture your creative souls and learn a few new skills on the way.
We are hosting the event in a beautiful glasshouse at Staverton Bridge Nursery which is set in a stunning location on the banks of the River Dart.Throughout the day Rosie & Grace will guide you through each process inspired by the beautiful Devon countryside and the kinship of working with others.
In the morning after chats & refreshments we will begin with a floral class in how to make a hand tie, using fresh seasonal produce. Students will be guided through the bouquet making process by Grace who will teach the method and technique of the hand-tie whilst allowing your individual creativity to take the reins.
The outcome -
a bouquet making process you can use time & time again, one that will change & develop through the seasons & over time.
After our morning session, students will sit down to a beautifully prepared organic lunch, home grown & locally sourced. After, you may wish to have a wander around the grounds and nursery before coming back for your afternoon session.
Rosie will begin the botanical paintings session using your made bouquets as inspiration. You will be encouraged to try different techniques and develop mindfulness to capture the foliage in front of you. Beginners and practiced draftsmen welcome.
The outcome -
Gaining confidence in using and experimenting with watercolour, a chance to try something new or simply a space for you to create. You will have some beautiful sketches to take home, cherish and inspire you.
Throughout the day you will be encouraged to style your workspace, take lots of snaps, share ideas and connect with others. Only 10 spaces available on this workshop.
