We have teamed up with the best and most unusual arts venue in town, Summerhall, to offer a programme of four classes in the run up to Christmas. We're teaching in the weird and wonderful Histology Lab (nope, we didn't know what that meant either) so you can expect laboratory benches, the tiniest sinks in existence and a unique learning environment. White coats optional.
Here's what we're teaching...
Vintage Vessels Saturday 17th November 1-3pm
Choose a quirky retro or vintage vessel from our collection to create your own super beautiful and vibrant Autumn arrangement to take home (or give away- but you won't want to!). We'll teach you all the tricks of the trade, absolutely no experience whatsoever needed.
Kokedama Saturday 1st December 1-3pm
Learn the magical art of kokedama, the Japanese hanging garden. Say goodbye to frumpy old pot plants and 'hellooo kokedama'! Loads of fun in the making and a cool hanging plant to take home and talk to (if you're anything like us!). A must for plant lovers and those who like the odd mud pie.
Ring-a-Ding Wreaths Thursday 6th December 6-8pm
Your front door will thank you for this one, learn the techniques and tricks to make your own 'not so usual' wreath from local foraged foliage and boxes of weird and wonderful treasures! This is a must-have Christmas skill.
Get your swag on Tuesday 11th December 6-8pm
Don't pay a fortune for a Christmas garland. Come and let us teach you a few basic skills to create your own luxurious Christmas swag to drape over the fireplace, up the staircase or around the door frames.
£35 per class or £30 per class if you book more than one. Bring your old friends, meet new ones and join our flower gang. All materials provided, festive refreshments and some Pyrus style tunes (you'll get a little taster of what we listen to in the studio). YEAH! We're excited, email us to book your place.
