AN INTRODUCTION TO FLORISTRy: valentines

In celebration of Valentines, we are hosting an Introduction to Floristry Workshop. Spend the day immersed in the world of floristry, learn new skills and enjoy taking a peak into the wild and wonderful world of JamJar Flowers.

  Saturday 13th February 2016: 8:00am - 3:00pm The day will be hosted by two of our excellent JamJar florists - there to guide you, teach you and answer any questions you may have. The day will start bright and early, meeting at the flower market where we will introduce you to our suppliers, show you around and explain how to purchase from the traders. Here you will also be able to select some of the flowers you will be using for the day, guided by our florists.  As we always use seasonal flowers - at this time of year you will find anemones, ranunculus and exquisite roses in romantic hues of pinks and reds. Hyacinths, lilac and narcissi will offer a little taste of Spring.  All of which we will use to create our seasonal JamJar arrangements.  We then head back to the JamJar HQ for coffee and buns, before getting started on prepping our flowers and making up a hand tied bouquet arrangement in a JamJar to take home.  Lunch is served at 12:30pm, re-energising you for the afternoon. We'll start with a lesson in wiring for hair flowers and buttonholes. Finally, using the skills you've learnt, you will be ready to tackle a large foliage based arrangement in a vintage bucket.  We will guide you through everything, from buying and prepping your flowers to how to make the most of them once you've taken them home.  You'll have a great day absorbing information, you'll definitely be ready to put your feet up and admire your new skills by the end of the day.  All materials will be provided.  Full Day Course: £240 per person Contact info@jamjarflowers.co.uk for more information
