Re-imagining Flower Classes For A Virtual World

January 2021 - a time like no other

It is so sad that the arrival of 2021 has brought us to another lockdown in the UK after the ' annus horribilis' that was 2020 and even with the promise of vaccines life as we know it seems unlikely to be too different at least for the first half of 2021 from what has gone these past nine months.

In all of this upheaval, our Canalside cutting garden has been our focus and our saving grace. Like many others though, our fierce ethical floral business, particularly our classes and tuition, has needed to change and adapt to remain relevant and viable.

So, the ever intrepid Scot, who has only latterly discovered I turned the heating down in the Wharf to store the tulips, is turning himself into a TV producer. As the historic narrowboats drift past on the canal with their ticking bolinder engines, we have the latest digital technology beaming from our 19th Wharf. In this new virtual Wharf world, we are making the experience as immersive and connecting as we possibly can, exploring every boundary of the technology to allow us to reach beyond our sanctuary.

We want our classes to remain warm, human and welcoming. We wanted to add an extra layer of experience beyond pressing the play button on a prerecorded  video.

The pandemic has prevented many of life’s touch points so we have especially focused on virtual connection. We want our classes to remain warm, human and welcoming. We wanted to add an extra layer of experience beyond pressing the play button on a prerecorded  video. We wanted to hear life and laughter even if we are in separate places smelling the pine and eucalyptus.

Ironically, on the weekend we had planned to hold our traditional face-to-face Autumn dried floral wreath workshop in our little village hall, we launched  our digital offering - group and 1-2-1 online flower classes. Following on from the overwhelming response to and success of these live online Autumn Wreath classes and “Tis the Season” Christmas  classes, we are continuing in the first half of 2021 with our live online  "Nature and Nurture" Zoom flower classes.

We would love to have you join us. Contact me to find out more and book.

In the meantime, come and say hello on  Instagram where we post our regularly.

A Valentines wreath with dry flowers......
We have decided to reimagine Valentines this year. Let's be honest, we're needing to reimagine quite a few things right now. While red roses are the more traditional Valentines flowers, here at our canalside cutting garden, we're continuing to focus on our sustainable floral designs and challenge conformity.
The roses in my snow covered garden are still in their mid winter slumber. So for the love of my roses, and the earth I grow them on, we're embracing a Valentines that has its roots in sustainability with our Valentines wreath, and our live online flower classes.
So for 2021, our "Nature and Nurture" series of classes starts with our Valentines Wreath Class. In this sustainable flower class, we'll chat about how developing your own creative practice can be as nurturing to you as our local British flowers are sustainable for the planet. We'll share you our wild garden style Valentines design know how, and the floral ingredients to choose. Of course, we'd love you to use your own locally grown flowers. We'll be using our flowers grown here in Cheshire. Join me live online. DM for details
