I am always, always surprised at how long it takes me to organise what seems like something very simple, and then always even more amazed when I think I’ve actually achieved it…but at least now there are tickets available for my Christmas Workshops in Brighton, even though at the moment it seems miles away!
If you’d like to come you can book a place here, and also have a look at my Workshop page here, and also do feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
I only have a small place here, therefore tickets are very limited, so if you miss out and would like me to run either a one to one or a small private workshop, please just ask and I can always try and sort something out.
This year’s Christmas workshops will be a little different from last year’s but you can have a look at this post from last December to get a feel for things…
I’ve been desperate for September to arrive so that I can talk about Autumn and the wonderful sense of change it brings: it’s smells, it’s colours, it’s light, it’s sounds, without feeling like I’m betraying Summer (…I’ve always felt a bit guilty that August is my least favourite month of the year! )
This morning I tried a new cycling route which was so beautiful; passing fields, flocks of little sparrows taking off from hedgerows, tractors in the distance, brown seed heads alongside greenery, a golden edge to the light and soft bird song…
The ride, with the season softly soaking up the countryside inspired me to create something at home… I had picked a couple of thistles and some of the brown seeds above ( I’m not sure what they are ), but I wanted to recreate the feeling with plants from my own garden… I got a bit distracted by tidying up my scruffy window boxes… I like them looking a bit wild, but they definitely needed a sort out, so I added succulents I’ve been growing in pots and some white cyclamen… …and so to the arrangement ( I had also found 3 conkers on the side of the road from my ride when I was nearly home )
