FLOWER ARRANGING WITH JONATHAN MOSELEY
Jonathan is very much loved by all our Derbyshire WI members. His cheeky asides always ensure gales of laughter, whilst his invaluable tips are remembered and utilised long after his demonstrations have finished, so it is no surprise that a flower arranging day organised by our Home Economics sub-committee at his unique Flower School was well attended.
Held at Cliff College in Calver shortly before Christmas, members were shown how to make easy bouquets, wreaths to adorn doors, simple but delightful Christmas table arrangements and also some breathtaking show-stoppers.
Advice was given about the best types of greenery to use, how to ensure that all cut material lasted as long as possible and how to incorporate gourds into a display. Cliff College then provided a delicious lunch, after which all of the arrangements were raffled off.
There was certainly much amusement afterwards with some of the lucky winners trying to fit flower arrangements almost as big as themselves into their cars.
