… and this is what I have been waiting for!
World renowned Master Florist Gregor Lersch is going to be visiting our beautiful Island in March 2012 and is going to treat some lucky lucky people to a floral demonstration and workshop masterclass! Eeeeekkkkk!!!
This all came about when I was chatting to one of my regular customers Trudi, and we both realised we had a love for this man’s work, and then she said she had been and was going again to one of his famous classes in Germany. To say I was envious was an understatement, but as all new business owners will know, taking a week away from the shop takes a lot of organising! So we thought, why not ask him if he can come to us? And he said yes! Eeeeeekkkk again!!
What I love about Gregors’ work is his use of pattern & texture, the way he layers up different materials to create beautiful structures and how delicate, yet strong his designs appear. He has been one of my biggest inspirations during my career so far as a florist, especially when it comes to his Christmas Designs.
We are still waiting to finalise the exact date, as airlines etc haven’t published their final schedules as yet, but he will be on the Isle of Man between the 7 & 8th of March 2012.
The demonstration will be in the evening and is priced at £45.00. The full day workshop will be £85.00. Both events will be held at Broadway Baptist Church.
Proceeds from the events will be going to Hands of Hope Charity which is a Manx registered charity helping the poor, homeless and needy in Romania.
We will let you know more details about these exciting events when we get them, but if you would like to register your interest and be guaranteed a ticket then please contact Heidi at The Flower Studio
