Cheshire area chair­man wows ladies at Prestbury Flower Club

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

PRESTBURY Flower Club mem­bers en­joyed a work­shop from the Cheshire area chair­man of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Flower Ar­rang­ing So­ci­eties.

Val Seed’s work­shop, at Prestbury vil­lage hall, show­cased two de­signs en­ti­tled In­side Out­side.

The first, which par­tic­i­pants recre­ated, was a long tray with hor­i­zon­tal dis­play where bark, stones and shells were added on the di­ag­o­nal as a back­bone to give a place­ment vis­i­ble from all direc­tions.

Les­ley Stafford, pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “The stun­ning re­sults filled the en­tire length of Prestbury vil­lage main hall and they were all dif­fer­ent, much to Val and the ladies’ de­light.”

Val’s sec­ond de­sign fea­tured trail­ing fo­liage, with tubes at­tached for flow­ers, in a curv­ing dis­play for a tall vase with a hand-tied bunch on top.

Les­ley said: “Two hours passed very quickly as Val en­cour­aged par­tic­i­pants, sug­gest­ing how ar­range­ments could achieve bal­ance.

“We had a lovely day with a lovely lady, and new guests at the work­shop agreed to be club mem­bers.”
