“The Materialist” with Nick Grounds

Our September demonstration was “The Materialist” with national demonstrator, Nick Grounds.

Nick joined us at Otford Village Hall for a demonstration featuring a number of different arrangements. Nick took a refreshing and naturalistic approach and the results were beautiful. He included the use of both fresh and dried materials to great effect:

Nick is very keen on working with seasonal materials and encouraging others to support our home growers in the UK. He gave us all lots of ideas and inspired us to “shop local” as much as possible.

Not only is Nick experienced and knowledgeable, he is also a very entertaining and humorous speaker. He had lots of amusing anecdotes to share and the afternoon was very enjoyable – we all left with a smile!

Our next event takes place on Tuesday 9th October, which is our Members’ Day. In the morning we have a “foliage only” workshop for members, starting at 10am. We then break for a members’ lunch, before a talk in the afternoon by Mille Fleurs Hats of Otford, which is open to all and promises to be very interesting.
