My good crafting friend had a birthday recently and, as she lives on her own I thought it would be nice to have a crafting day. The problem is that we’ve experienced many different crafts so to find something new that could actually take place on her birthday was quite a challenge. After some research I booked Cathy Penrose – The Flower Shop, Chalgrove, to come and hold a flower arranging workshop in my studio. We decided to go small and make the arrangements in tea cups. Then the fun began.
We were joined by another crafting friend, hence six arrangements, so it was a morning full of fun and laughter, and concentrating faces. Cathy was very patient and encouraging as our arrangements took shape.
The colours that Cathy chose are so lovely and all six arrangements are different.
So now Lynn and I are going to make some for my Art Weeks exhibition. I am going to offer coffee and tea to my guests so I thought we could adorn the tables with some flowers. I’m just hoping that we can produce arrangements as good as these.
