TERRAZZO BROOCH WORKSHOP WITH Rosa Pietsch
2.30 - 5PM Saturday
In this workshop, you can create a colourful Terrazzo-style brooch using laser-cut acrylics and wood. You will be able to select from a vast array of colours and textures, to create your very own unique colour combination.
While the 'making' part of this workshop is super quick and easy, the challenge is deciding on your perfect colour combination! Colour is such a personal choice, and a huge part of any design process, so you'll end up with a combination that is ideal for you (or the person you're making the brooch for!)
(There are three time slots to choose from: 2.30 - 3.10pm, 3.30-4.10pm and 4.20 - 5pm. )

Happy Houseplant Workshop
11 - 5pm Saturday
The Happy Houseplants workshop aims to give an education in houseplants. With so much contradictory information coming from everywhere it can get a bit confusing figuring out what you plants need to thrive (and how to share them)!
Join us for a thorough lesson in houseplant care with a small group of plant enthusiasts. (Our group classes are a maximum of 8 people).
We'll cover the history of houseplants, what will thrive best in which situations and what might be going wrong with your plants. Learn about different light and water requirements, how and when to pot on and finally we will then guide you through how to propagate different sorts of plants. This is the perfect opportunity to gain a bit of confidence and knowledge with your indoor plants.
You'll get to take away a potted plant, collection of different plant cuttings to grow for yourself and of course we'll be on hand to answer any questions you have about your plants.
