A SEASON TO GATHER:
Saturday 27th April 2019
(This workshop is now closed)
It’s lovely to have a break from your normal routine at any time of the year and if you can combine that with doing something that really interests you and enjoy fresh homemade food in the company of like-minded people, that makes for a really special and memorable day out.
Spring is a time to celebrate flowers and the beauty of Nature. On April 27th we are joining with two very talented, creative women - floral artist, Anna Reddings, and natural dyeing specialist, Ros Humphries who will be sharing their expertise and secrets with you. Enjoy a day of workshops and food where you will be creating a gorgeous seasonal eco-garland and naturally dyed fabrics to bring Nature into your home in unique ways throughout the year.
Anna Reddings' lovely floral creations can be seen on instagram @talesfromappletreecottage. She will be showing you how to make your own beautiful floral arrangements. Ros Humphries uses plants for wonderful natural dyes. Her exquisite and subtle crafts can be seen on instagram @thenaturaldyeworks and she will be showing you how to use the pigments found all around us in Nature to create beautiful fabrics for your home.
The workshop day is about pure enjoyment. In our cosy, rustic farmhouse you'll gather with those who love doing the things that you love. It will be a relaxing break as well as an informative one. You'll enjoy fresh, seasonal, home-cooked food throughout the day and learn new skills to take home forever. Come alone and meet new like-minded people, or come with a partner or friend.
The day begins at 10.30am when you will meet Anna and Ros, and each other of course. There will be a short introduction and some refreshments to start the day.
The morning will be devoted to the art and craft of Natural Dyeing with Ros.
After Ros’s workshop we will all gather together for a relaxing freshly cooked lunch.
In the afternoon Anna will run her Floral Workshop where you will learn to make beautiful seasonal eco-garlands and other floral works of art.
Finally you will create a beautiful amalgamation of the work that you have done in both workshops, all of which you will take home.
The day will end at 4 o'clock with a Sussex cream tea.
WORKSHOPS on Saturday 27th April: £140.00 per person for 2 workshops which will include all refreshments and food, equipment, materials and finished items to take home.
