VANESSA BELL FLORISTRY WORKSHOP @ CHARLESTON, EAST SUSSEX (Tuesday July 17, 10AM)
A day immersed in flowers, inspired by the still life paintings of the magnificent Vanessa Bell. We will begin the day with a tour of the Charleston House and Garden, looking in detail at Vanessa Bell’s still life work. The rest of the day will be spent learning to create a large scale vase arrangement using a mix of home grown (by Carlsson & Co.) and seasonal flowers. Participants will explore how to combine flower shapes and colours to create flow and form. After a delicious lunch, participants will be led for a short walk along the Old Coach Road, to forage a final few stems for the arrangement. Everybody will leave with a beautiful arrangement, including the vase.
The cost of the day includes a tour of the House and Garden, an artisan lunch, tea and coffees, and all tools and materials. Suitable for all levels.
