    Course Description:

    Be inspired to create a hand-tied bouquet that is very natural and wild, very fresh, slightly magical, with a spirit of ‘just picked in the Lakes’! This course will give you the confidence to create a stunning bouquet using seasonal flowers and foliage. A relaxed friendly and informal workshop; perfect for complete beginners, those with some experience and any flower lovers. Learn how to choose materials, consider more unusual ‘ingredients’ and discover how to bring different elements together to achieve a natural look, considering colour, texture and shape. Pepy will invite you to wander into the garden and beyond on our traditional Lakeland farm, to select your own material to add, if you wish. You will be shown how to condition your stems, create a relaxed, unstudied arrangement and how to care for your flowers. Wrap your bouquet in a natural, eco-friendly way using waxed tissue and brown paper (no cellophane!), and tie it off with raffia. The perfect gift!

    Pepy Keegan studied Horticulture at Myerscough College after a career in International Development. She started her own business, Backyard Blooms, after building a prolific garden in Cumbria. She is interested in creating a garden by finding the best plant for the best place – working out what is happiest here and working with the seasons. Trained with a florist in Hereford (Wild Bunch Flowers) her style is very naturalistic and intuitive. In her own designs she uses flowers, herbs, foliage (both fresh and dried), twigs, bulbs and moss grown in abundance in her garden flower farm and foraged from the surrounding meadows. As well as selling her own bouquets and running workshops, she is the in-house florist for the Black Bull Inn in Sedbergh.
