The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Carol Siddorn: December 2017
Many of us know of Carol Siddorn and of her fantastic success, not least at Tatton Park RHS when she and the team were not only awarded Monty's 'Trowel of Honour' but were also featured on the BBC. Carol has also been awarded prizes in the hotly contested 'Floral Art' section of the Southport Flower Show, competing with entries from all over the North West. The Southport Flower Show, held at Victoria Park in Southport, is the largest independent flower show in the United Kingdom. Many of you, of course, will have been delighted to hear Carol's pearls of wisdom at Tattenhall Garden Society events too.
Well, with Christmas Wreath making behind her, Carol just wanted everyone to know that there are lots of workshops planned for 2018 — from creating your own cut flower patch to flower farming, and 'cut and arrange' sessions, where participants can wander the fields with a bucket and make their own arrangement or bouquet — how inspirational is that!. Absolutely no pressure and no expectation. The fields are particularly beautiful from April to October, enhanced by the surrounding natural landscape, tucked under Rawhead.
With this in mind, the workshops are listed below and in case you are still searching for that unique Christmas Gift, then gift vouchers are available for £45 which would include a half day workshop or, vouchers to any value for flowers, once the season is back in full swing from April.
New dates have just issued — for more information or to book a place or to buy a gift voucher for a workshop, email email@example.com or call 01829 782895. Please note: our website isn't fully operational currently since we have experienced some recent technical difficulties.
There will be more workshop dates issued in January 2018, including some more technical flower-related ones. We can also arrange bespoke or party workshops for groups of 4 or more. Please ask.
