KIL­BRAN­DON SWI mem­bers wel­comed guest speaker Karen Mackie to Seil Is­land Hall for their April meet­ing.

Flower ar­rang­ing ex­pert Karen demon­strated how to make three dif­fer­ent types of ar­range­ments: a round one, a long, low hor­i­zon­tal one and a tall, tri­an­gu­lar one.

Karen put these to­gether us­ing fo­liage mem­bers had brought from their gar­dens as well as shop-bought flow­ers ac­quired by the com­mit­tee. Then it was the turn of mem­bers to have a go. ‘Karen pro­vided us with the equip­ment to get started – an oa­sis, con­tainer and tape for each mem­ber,' said Pa­tri­cia McDicken.

‘By the end of the even­ing we had pro­duced a fan­tas­tic se­lec­tion of flo­ral ar­range­ments, all dif­fer­ing in size and colour. We had a lot of fun and picked up tips from Karen that will be use­ful in the fu­ture. Shona Neil gave the vote of thanks.’
