I know many of you have been looking forward to the announcement of this festive workshop with PENNY SIMONS on FRIDAY 1 DECEMBER: WILLOW, VINE & FOLIAGE for WREATHS, HEARTS & STARS. As I said last year for the first edition of this workshop.....what a fun way to begin the frivolity that December is bound to bring!
This time around, I can let you know that last year's event was one of the most truly delightful on the Glenmore calendar (well....I love them all, but this was just fabulous!). Penny is a generous, patient and encouraging teacher, and under her guidance you will make delightful creations to take home, using the bounty of material that Penny will forage especially for the workshop. Once again, we will set trestle tables in the Dairy and Loggia so that you can have fun making the biggest mess while you manipulate and weave, twist and tie. As a result, our garden-inspired lunch will take place at the long table in the Hayshed, which makes for an extra special festive treat.
If the event is at all like last year....a hint of summer will fill the air along with a sense of anticipation and a lot of chatter....a day of creative indulgence before the real chaos of the month sets in!
You can discover all the details of the day and the booking form here. And if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. Penny and I very much hope you will be tempted to join us for a day of creativity and fun!
Very best wishes as always,
