So we spring cleaned the barn, painted up some MDF boards with gorgeous Nature Paint colours, ordered an abundance of British Flowers from BJ Richards and foraged till our hearts content all in great anticipation of our first workshop of the year!

It really was quite a special day for TGGFC we have never had an industry meet up on the farm before - we were charged with great talent and energy that drove in on the farm that day we are sure this won't be the last one!

Following our tea, cake, gossip, lunch and garden tour we headed up to the new 'workshop' barn to play with beautiful #britishflowers.  Maz created a stunning eucalyptus garland (the storm was good for some things!) which hugged a table laced with jugs of hellebores, rannunclus, narcissi, tulips, blossom, delicate snowflakes and more...!

There were others that escaped our camera - sorry.

It felt strange the day after clearing up the barn, a space that was filled with such energy the day before and the day after just felt like a quiet old barn again.  However we did play with some rather wonderful leftovers!....
