Classes For the Florally Curious 2013

It's high time that we published our list for our Classes For the Florally Curious.

Florally Curious beginners are most welcome. If you've been before, you're most welcome too.   You know the form.  Newbies will soon figure out how it all comes together.

We used to name the classes, but this year I'll be designing classes as I go along.  Expect seasonal flowers and lots of colour.  Unusual containers are a recurrent theme.  I'm toying with the idea of bean cans. I'll see.

Sometimes we use Oasis, sometimes we don't.  Occassionally there's more containers than flowers.  That's because we look at styling.  Sometimes there's no containers at all.  That's just the way it is.

Here's the list, with a few hints at what joys may come your way.
Thursday 7th November 2013.  Working with pure white.
Thursday 21 November 2013.  Classic designs.
Thursday 5th December 2013. Wreath making.  There will be large bows.  Class subject to change.  We're waiting on news of the Burton Road lights being switched on.
Thursday 12th December 2013.  Another wreath making.  Bows are de rigeur. We're going to have to move this to another date.  Most likely Wednesday 11 December. 
Thursday 23 January 2014. Inspired by the bare branches of winter.
Thursday 27 February 2014.  I love thee. Flowers.  And chocolate.
Thursday 27 March 2014.  Think scented spring.

They will be taking place at the home of all things cakey, 'And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon', Burton Road, West Didsbury, Manchester.

£35* for a two hour floral class starting at 6.30pm including tea or coffee, cakes and blooms. *Christmas Classes are £40 and start at 6.15pm.  Usually, all classes are finished by 8.15pm so that we can all be tucked up with a cocoa by 9pm.  Rock and floral roll.

We provide:
- Tea and cake on arrival, naturally
- All the things you'll need
- Blooms, right posh ones, like the ones you see at nice weddings
- Pinnies and scissors for you to borrow so you look the part
- Mucho natter about Strictly Come Dancing

You leave with:

- Secrets from the floral world
- Newly found skills and knowledge
- A full tummy and a cake addiction
