Natalia Willmott in association with York florist Joanna Keely will be hosting a “men only” floral workshop in her home in Stillingfleet on 10 February 2019.
Participants will enjoy a three hour workshop with a floral demonstration, a home made curry, leading to the making of a floral gift and card to take home and give to a loved one. It’s a great opportunity to create and socialise in a beautiful home setting…Natalia’s home is gorgeous!
Joanna is a florist with a beautiful studio in Bishopthorpe where she sells flowers and holds courses throughout the year. She says that most of her classes are attended by woman but “one man came for a lesson and has since gone to study floristry at Askham Bryan”.
She and Natalia want to encourage men to try something new and benefit from the relaxation, the beauty, the creativity, the wellbeing that working with flowers brings. “Being surrounded by beautiful items such as flowers makes you immediately switch off from a more stressful work environment but also gifting something you have made is so thoughtful and unexpected that it will definitely give you brownie points,” says Natalia, who is a home stylist who sells art, antiques and giftware. She also has an online shop nataliawillmott.co.uk and runs masterclasses and “Home away from Home parties”.
Floral workshop for men, Monday, 10 February 2020, 18:30 – 21:30 GMT, in Stillingfleet
