If you are part of the new found love for dried flowers here’s your chance to treat yourself or someone special to an arrangement. Placed out of direct light and in a dry atmosphere they last for ages. All these are grown and dried locally and naturally, no chemicals, very few miles!
A new collection of dried flower arrangements will be available from this afternoon at https://www.facebook.com/smeatongallery/.
Direct commissions are always welcome.
All my flowers are locally sourced in beautiful East Lothian.
I opened the doors to my first workshop as Flowersmith on Saturday. A perfect autumnal day of creativity unfolded helped by guest florist, Marie, over for a visit from France. It was great to see the students at the end of the day happy and clutching their delicate creations on leaving.
Here’s a few photos to whet your appetite, fresh, dried, herby, green, there are endless combinations of wreathiness.
Saturday 26th October 10.30am -1.30pm
Come and spend a relaxing few hours in an historic old house in Dunbar among flowers. After a short demonstration you will get a chance to create your own dried-flower arrangement to take home. All flowers will have been gathered from East Lothian, free from pesticides.
Yummy nibbles too of course.
Spaces Limited, so early booking is advised.
Wonderful barter, hydrangeas for homemade jams!
