Axminster flower arrangers take a step back in time
PUBLISHED: 07:00 13 February 2020
Beginning their first flower arranging workshop for 2020, three Axminster women were amongst a lively group being taught at Combe St Nicholas Village Hall.
The theme of the workshop was 'back in time', learning to create a design inspired by a well-known historical TV drama that was made into a film.
Using seasonal foliage and just a few flowers, the participants watched tutor Jackie Nicholls make an arrangement that wouldn't have been out of place in a stately home.
Axminster member Julia Yates said: "I was extremely pleased with my design. I learnt how to be free, blousy and adventurous, it was great fun."
Carole Hanna, from Axminster, added "It really worked perfectly for me. I was thrilled with the end result."
Jackie Nicholls, from Ashville Design, said: "The aim was to challenge everyone into making a big, blousy arrangement - and the results were simply amazing."
