Simon Lycett

Superb Summer Flower Arranging

One of the most popular and skilled floral designers in the UK, Simon Lycett is hosting a hands-on day course where everyone will create breathtaking arrangements with late summer flowers.

You will start the day by creating a front-facing arrangement. Simon will demonstrate how to use branches and stems of greenery among blooms of dahlias, cornflowers and marigolds.

In the afternoon, you will learn and practice the essential skills to make a sculptural decoration, incorporating seasonal fruits, gourds and berries.

Simon will help everyone to develop their own style, as well as teaching the basic skills. You will be amazed at what you have created by the end of the day!

The cost includes all flowers, lunch and refreshments, and equipment will be provided too. Everyone will go home with two beautiful decorations to enjoy (and show-off) at home.
