Pretty Peonies, delightful dahlias and lovely lisianthus

Throughout the class you'll master the art of piping these 3 beautiful flowers and learn the professional colouring techniques which breath life into your flowers and elevate your designs.

A special treat

After all that 'hard work' it must be time for tea!  So, sit back and relax as you enjoy a little something special with scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam and lashings of tea and coffee too, of course, all enjoyed from vintage china.

And for those who fancy a little something extra special, enjoy a glass of chilled prosecco or 'Nosecco' for those who prefer a non-alcoholic treat. 

(Special dietary requirements can happily be accommodated with prior notice)

Developing your skills

So, feeling refreshed it's time for the final part of the class and you'll have the chance to develop your skills further with some slightly more advanced piping and arrangement skills.
