All About Tulips - Growing and Arranging Workshop
Water Lane x Bloom & Burn
In this workshop you'll learn everything you need to know about tulips for cutting and arranging. The workshop will start with a guided tour of the cutting garden with Ian, who will share his knowledge of growing tulips; from where to source your bulbs, interesting and unusual varieties to look out for and different options for planting. Again this year Water Lane has planted over 4000 tulips for cutting. Ian will explain how to harvest the bulbs for use in arranging and be on hand to answer any questions that you might have and share his hints and top tips.
Following this Graeme from Bloom and Burn will guide you through a fun, interactive demo on how to get the best out of these familiar blooms when arranging. Using sustainable mechanics like kenzans and chicken wire to create light, airy designs and plenty of florist tricks like reflexing that will transform the look of your tulips. There will be time for you to ask questions and you will leave with new ideas on how to style tulips in your own home as well as a bunch for you to try your newly learned skills at home.
