Flower Arranging Christmas Theme
Sunday 24th November 0930am – 1130am
Have you ever wanted to create your own Christmas wreath or a beautiful table setting for that special lunch or dinner but not sure where to start or how to go about it? Then this 2 hour workshop will be ideal to get you on your way (as well as impress family and friends J).
Bea Stumple, an expert local florist, will be presenting this event.
Bea qualified as the top student in NZ when she completed her NZ Professional Floristry examinations 26 years ago and is one of only 16 people to have received the Ethel Black Award (a top accolade in the floristry world). She is also a registered examiner and accomplished tutor – so Bea knows her stuff.
She plans to stroll around the gardens with attendees selecting appropriate plants and flowers and then show you how to arrange them to best effect.
Bea will be explaining:
- Appropriate plants and flowers that work well together
- Various arrangement techniques and concepts
- How to make your creations last longer
- Tools and materials required
After the workshop maybe spend more time in the Gardens which has a beautiful 1km nature trail meandering through the idyllic Kaipara countryside.*
There is also a kid’s play area as well asour cute little coffee shop on site plus of course the Plant Centre for you to browse through.
Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will also be on hand to help with any garden related questions.
* Trail not suitable for wheelchairs or walking frames.
