Learn to be a Flowersmith

Come and have a fun and informative day and discover how to be a Flowersmith! We will walk around Amisfield Walled Garden, an eighteenth century treasure, and discuss flowers, textures, colours, foliage as we pick and choose our ingredients. I will demonstrate how to use them and using different containers with lots of hints and tips. You will arrange something yourself in a vintage container to take away with you.
