FLOWER WORKSHOPS

FOR THE NATIONAL TRUST AT COTEHELE

 We will be running a series of seasonal flower workshops in 2019 for The National Trust at Cothele, the Tudor ancestral home of the Edgecombe family, perched above the River Tamar in Cornwall.

Each of the four workshops follows the seasons.  The flowers and foliage used will be linked to those in bloom at Cotehele at that time.  After the workshop wander through the grounds and gardens, chat to the garden staff,  and see the best suited locations to grow the flowers and foliage used in the workshop.

The workshops will run from 10:30am to 12:30pm and will be held in the Edgecombe Tea Room at Cothele Quay where refreshments will be available to purchase before and after the workshop, or where you could enjoy a Cornish Cream tea after your morning’s efforts.

At each workshop Miranda will talk to you about the provenance of the flowers and foliage used before providing a demonstration in a natural and free-flowing style.  It will then be your turn to create a beautiful design to take home or give as a gift.

£60pp which includes all flowers, foliage, materials and containers.  No prior floral experience is necessary.  Refreshments will be available to purchase from the Tea Room.  The National Trust’s Cotehele, St Dominick, near Saltash, Cornwall, PL12 6TA.
