FANS of all things floral are being invited to pump up their flower power in Winchcombe at a summer workshop this week.
Award-winning flower exponent Arnaud Metairie is offering amateur arrangers the chance to pick up top tips on creating displays of colourful blooms and foliage on Friday.
Entitled 'Handbag Arrangement', the workshop runs from 10am until 4pm at Winchcombe's Guide Hall and as well as all flowers and materials, the £46 price includes lunch at the nearby Wesley House restaurant, morning teas and coffees and a visit to a local garden.
Frenchman Arnaud is a qualified floral art demonstrator for the three counties and South Wales area of the National Art of Flower Arranging Society and last year won best in show and other awards for his displays at Malvern's Three Counties Show.
Arnaud said: "I will be showing enthusiasts how to create an arrangement using a handbag as a prop and giving general advice."
