Winter workshops


A day of winter floristry at the flower garden at Stokesay Court, near Ludlow


1st December 2018


Visitors to our store and readers of our little Instagram account know that each week this year we have been the very lucky recipients of the most wonderful flowers from the beautiful flower garden at Stokesay Court, all grown by Barney and Victoria. I am thrilled to announce that on the 1st December you can join me for a whole day of winter floristry in their charming workrooms and bothy at Stokesay.

Your day will start at 10.30 with refreshments. Once everyone has arrived we will guide you through how to make your own winter wreath using a choice of fresh and dried materials from the garden and lots of festive bits and bobs.

A lovely warming lunch will be provided between 1 and 2pm in the bothy, after which Victoria will give a tour of the garden where you can pick her brains on flower growing.

At around 2.30 you will make a festive table centre piece under my direction, after which there will be some tea and cake before you leave.

Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

The price includes all materials, food and drink during the day and a complimentary festive drink or two. To book go over on our shop page.

Festive Lino Printing class for beginners



Join us for a festive lino printing workshop on Sunday 25th November.

Local printmaker Leah Shafi will take you through the basics of lino print, guide you as you carve your own designs and turn them into your own bespoke Christmas cards and present tags.

All materials are included in the ticket price and you’ll also get your own complete kit bag with all you’ll need to continue developing your newly found printing skills.

The kit bag includes:

  • Cutting tool (with 5 blades)

  • A5 piece of Japanese Lino

  • Paper/card pack

  • Plastic Sheet

  • Bamboo brayer

  • Roller

  • 35ml Tube of Ink

  • mini pegs

Feel free to put together some design ideas beforehand, but we’ll have festive inspiration on hand.

For a cleaner print we’ll be using oil based ink which takes 24 hours to dry. We’ll hang your prints up in the store ready for collection later in the week. Also, just to be safe don’t wear your Sunday bests as this ink could stain.

Complementary refreshments and mince pies will be served. Suitable for ages 10 and up.

Limited spaces available though our online shop or in-store.
