Flower club demonstration blossoms on past experiences
MEMBERS of Prestbury Flower Club were entertained by demonstrator Wendy Graveston earlier this month and her session entitled ‘The Apprentice’, as she was before taking her demonstrator’s test.
Wendy’s arrangements reflected various times in her life, including when she was a make-up lady for an amateur dramatics group and when she passed her driving test.
And despite a challenging start to the session, the determined demonstrator made sure everyone enjoyed it.
Lesley Stafford, programme secretary, said: “As Wendy started she realised her turntable was broken and quipped: ‘I’m glad I’m wearing pretty shoes for you to look at’. Then, unperturbed, she manually walked the arrangements around for us all to see their construction.”
Adding that the arrangements were ‘lovely’, and that Wendy did flowers for her church, making use of the church foliage, Lesley said: “She became involved via her dad with local amateur dramatics as make-up lady, but managed to poke her dad in the eye while putting on his make-up.
“As a tribute to the stage spotlights, she arranged lovely white carnations.”
The demonstration also involved a wheel trim attached to other metal car parts, remembering the time when Wendy crashed her first car, ‘Genesis’, during learner training from her dad, but then took lessons and passed her test first time.
