Fun Flower Arranging Workshops - Including Leaf Manipulation Techniques;

4 Dates, 4 Different Workshops.

Please see Workshop changes due to coronavirus

These 4 different workshops taught and designed by Gill have two different designs in each of the 4 different workshops for you to make; that will also incorporate the use of different leaf manipulation techniques; so your designs have a refreshingly different visual impact.

Leaf manipulation has revolutionised the way flower arrangers can create designs to have even more visual impact.

You can purchase workshops here by adding them to your shopping cart or, if you prefer, print the flower arranging booking form, complete with your details and send it with your cheque to the addresse on the form.

Workshop Changes

Due to the uncertainty of the potential spread of coronavirus and our concern for the safety of our students at our workshops, we have decided that it is best to protect, as far as is possible, our students and we are therefore going to cancel April 25th and June 6th and we will be refunding your workshop vouchers over the next 2 weeks by the means by which you paid; i.e. if by Paypal then via Paypal and if by cheque then via cheque.

With regards to Floral Art Demonstrations; please speak with your individual club programme secretaries.

On a positive note we provide Free Flower Arranging Videos from www.gillmcgregor.com/free ; which we will be adding to over the next weeks for your free enjoyment.

We are also able to continue to supply our flower arranging books from our Coronavirus free facility to enable you to continue to enjoy flower arranging.

We wish you and your family well as we all adapt our lives to these challenging times.

Until we are able to once again get together safely, Gill is creating a new series of "How To .." flower arranging videos to entertain, to inspire, to educate and remind ourselves of the beauty of this art. These designs were created using available garden materials and everything we flower arrangers love to hoard, or using everyday objects in different, flower arranging, ways.

Help with school work; let´s Explore and make Craft projects at home. Whilst schools are closed Gill wanted to help our family members with their new huge task of teaching and entertaining their children at home. Then friends were interested and as the list grew, we thought to make these ideas available for everyone to use.

The following information was written before the outbreak of Covid-19.

The way we were - and will be again > > > >

Refreshing changes to the way you can learn.

A typical week for Gill includes floral art demonstrations (often booked 2 to 3 years in advance) and flower arranging workshops around the country. Gill also provides existing students with 'One-to-One' lessons where they study either flower arranging or floristry.

For new students and workshops Gill maintains a flexibility in her busy schedule so that she can take on new teaching and demonstrating commitments. As a new student all you have to do is contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you and in discussion arrive mutually agreeable dates. Gill can also walk you through the option on cost of tuition and materials that would be required.

One-to-One

Gill offers the flexibility of 'One-to-One' lessons so that students can learn what they need to learn to achieve their individual goals without making the time commitment expected of them if they were otherwise to attend traditional college courses. Gill lessons are all about concentrated practical learning  Student goals can, for example, be to achieve a higher practical grade in their floristry exams or to improve their creative skills when they design their next floral design.

Workshops

Workshops provided by Gill can be held at your local venue or run for your group of friends and often by businesses who wish to help their staff develop new skills; banqueting and hotel staff come to mind. There are just so many people that do not have the time to attend the traditional longer term college courses yet really love making floral designs and want to do something new, refreshingly different and one day workshops are a very good solution.

Timetable

You choose when; from available dates. The college's website depicts many different courses, that have been run previously, as a source of the variety of subjects that you can learn. Armed with an understanding that you can organise your next lesson as either a One-to-One, or as a Workshop, your next best step is to call Gill to discuss what you have done so far, what you would like to do next, where and when it could be taught. Gill in return can clarify any questions that you have,  offer available suitable dates and advise the likely cost of materials and cost of tuition.
