Create at The Knowe 2022

Small, relaxed, bespoke workshops in the Bewcastle valley, a beautiful unspoilt corner of North East Cumbria.

Workshops will run from 10.30am to approx. 2.00pm. £65 per person which includes all materials, homemade refreshments, and light lunch.

Come and create a beautiful arrangement or wreath with British grown flowers, bulbs and foliage using sustainable mechanics. We will guide you in producing something unique and wonderful.  The group is kept small to allow for individual attention and getting to know your fellow participants. No experience is needed.
