We have four Co-op floristry courses running in Fleckney in Leicestershire and once again Jody, who looks after the courses, and I were invited back to make a Christmas Wreath with some of the students. After a warm and friendly welcome and a mince pie and a cup of tea we set to work on our creations.
Under the watchful eye of our expert Tutor, Sharon McKinder, she carefully guided the group through the stages of making a Christmas Wreath and alternative Christmas arrangements and it was interesting to see how everyone's turned out differently, depending on how big or small or heavy or light you wanted yours to look. We were also able to choose from sparkly or natural additions to enhance the greenery, finishing with a choice of bows. We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the class and walked away feeling very pleased with what we achieved.
The classes create lots of seasonal themed arrangements and new members are always welcome.
