10.30am – 1.30pm
Come and celebrate the start of Autumn with a day learning and making with nature. As we leave summer behind and move towards spending a little more time indoors we can turn to harvesting, preserving and using the bounty that the previous months have provided us with.
Flowers can be fleeting but by drying and preserving their beauty can be extended and enjoyed. This day workshop gives you the knowledge and time to understand techniques used in floral harvesting, drying and making, and preserving summer’s beauty for the months ahead.
Along with learning the techniques involved, this session will also give you the time and freedom to explore and play with the potential of using dried flowers at home and in wreath making.
Zosia is a botanical and floral designer/artist. Taking inspiration from the biophilia hypothesis* and the therapeutic benefits of being surrounded by natural elements, Zosia is fascinated with how people interact with and use space. She has created natural, living, and dried installations, and curated environments with people and plants in mind. Zosia works seasonally and takes inspiration for her floral designs directly from how they grow together in their natural environment. Her floral workshops are designed to give participants a balance between gaining practical botanical knowledge and creative play.
