After our introduction I will give a short talk and demonstration on making a fresh flower crown using flowers and foliage grown and picked on the farm. I will show you floristry techniques such as wiring and binding, alongside describing which types of flowers and foliage work best for specialist floristry work such as this. After the demonstration you will have the opportunity to wire some flowers and foliage yourself, and I will be there to offer you help and advice. Once you've got your wiring techniques in place we'll move on to start designing and putting the crown together. Each participant will be encouraged to select their crowns contents from buckets of pre-picked and conditioned flowers and foliage's which have all been grown here on the hill. The class is relaxed and fun and participents will be allowed to experiment freely in their creations.
Co-owner of Howe Hill Flower Farm, professional florist and designer! I have over 20 years experience as a commercial florist, working in busy flower shops in Galway, Cork City and Kinsale. Alongside floristry, I ran my own jewellery design & millinery company for over 10 years - I studied textile design at GMIT followed by a certificate course as a fashion technician, putting pretty things together has always been my forte! My previous teaching experiences have been jewellery making & millinery skills at a local art school, and night classes at one of Corks leading further education colleges.

Our classes take place in our studio - a renovated stone wall cow shed located beside our micro flower farm. The studio is also a gallery space for Michael Prior Photography so you can enjoy viewing some wonderful landscape photograpic art while you work on your floristry skills. If the weather is nice enough, we can take our class outside on our sheltered patio, right behind the studio.
