Flowers from the Farm with Justine @ The Laverton
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

A fascinating evening of artisan floristry with organic flower farmer, Justine Scouller.

First a short talk on the principles, high and lows of flower farming before a demonstration of a large urn arrangement in her natural free-flowing way with a seasonal style and a wild vibe and then a chance to make up your own posy to take home.  You are encouraged to indulge your artistic side and surprise yourself!

Justine gives talks and demonstrations all over the country and is a regular at RHS shows from Cardiff and Malvern to Tatton Park.  She uses ‘no dig’ techniques, makes her own plant and soil food and can talk about compost until the cows come home!

Trained in horticulture at Sparsholt College, Justine worked as a garden designer before establishing her flower farm at Far Hill in 2014.  She now combines growing and artisan floristry and produces masses of flowers and foliage for lots of weddings, event florists and direct to the public.  She also teaches courses in flower farming and growing cut flowers and holds workshops throughout the year.  Justine is co-chair of Flowers from the Farm, a nationwide network of flower farmers promoting the use of British flowers. Find out more at www.farhillflowers.co.uk 

Justine will bring buckets of flowers grown on her farm and foliage foraged from her woods and fields so all you need to bring is yourself!

Spaces are limited for this event so please book early.

An introduction to Spinning @ The Woollery
Oct 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

If you have ever fancied having a go at spinning your own yarn, this taster session might just whet your appetite for this classical and ancient craft.

During the session, you will look at the qualities of different fibres and you can have a go at each stage of the process – carding, drafting, spinning and plying.  You’re welcome to use one of our drop spindles or you can bring your own, and there will be some spinning wheels on hand in you want to try one out.

The cost includes all materials and refreshments will be available for a small donation.  Spaces are limited so advance booking is required.  Get your tickets direct from The Woollery at 6 Warminster Road, Westbury.
