Ladies learn how to create a bubbly design

Ladies from Axminster showed off their flower arranging talents during the first of a new series of specially designed workshops at Combe St Nicholas Village Hall.

Celebrating their first session for 2019, they learnt how to feature flowers, foliage and fizz into a beautifully bubbly design.

Tailored for everyone with an interest in arranging flowers regardless of experience, the ladies watched a step-by-step demonstration first before rolling up their sleeves and having a go themselves.

Amongst the Axminster participants were Julia Yates and Gillie George. Julia said: “This was a bubbling, fizzy and floral day. The results were wonderful!”

“I loved this workshop and will make this design again and again, it was such fun”, added Gillie George.

Award-winning Somerset tutor Jackie Nicholls, from Ashville Design, who teaches the workshops said: “I always encourage the development of individual styles which creatively, makes the workshops even more exciting.”

“We decided to celebrate the start of another workshop year by enjoying a glass of bubbly at the end – the toast was to flowers, fun and friendship. Well done to everyone who came, it was just fabulous!”
