GARDENERS’ COFFEE MORNINGS

In 2019 we are replacing Garden Workshops with Gardeners’ Coffee Mornings which will be held on the 1st Wednesday of each month from April until September. They will take place at various locations which will be announced in your regular newsletters. It is hoped that members will meet and visit a garden and discuss gardening problems and together find solutions. There will be no set topics, but free flowing discussions on whatever topic members wish to discuss on the day. Many minds are better than one. The only cost will be a small donation to help the host or hostess pay for refreshments

 

FLOWER ARRANGING WORKSHOPS – How to progress from ‘plonking’ to ‘placing’!

All members are welcome to join in at the monthly flower arranging sessions. Although led by Lindy  and Bruna, the aim is for everyone to learn from each other. For part of the year, we focus on the titles for the Floral Art classes for each show. This creates an opportunity to do lots of different types of arrangement from very small to arrangements up to 3 feet tall. Basic principles for successful arranging are explained and followed but there is every opportunity for individual flair and creativity. It is amazing how different arrangements can be although all inspired by the same title!
The group will meet on the first Monday of each month from 2.00–3.30pm at Highbury Hall, Highbury Lane, Tenterden. There will be a small charge to cover the cost of the hall rental. For those who may not have their own supplies members can make small purchases of oasis, containers, wires, glue etc. Prior to each meeting details of the arrangements, flowers and foliage required will be emailed to those who express an interest.
