Upcoming workshops at Floriography by Vera Fallacy

The workshops are going well – well that’s what you are saying and that’s what matters most to me. The next workshop (Tuesday 15th September) is fully booked and the wreath making workshop that I first planned is also fully booked, so the lovely Alice & Amber have scheduled a 2nd one for us to do and that’s on here too. If any of the remaining workshops get full-up and there are several of you still showing interest, I will try to run another date for you. If you want a specific workshop or flowery get together then we can also arrange something to suit you – just talk to us about your flowering ideas and requests…

…have a look at our updated workshops list;
Summer to Winter Workshops 2015
You can use our online form to book a place – or come in and see us, you are always welcome!

Much flower love,

Committing to blogging is hard

I have written a load of bits and bobs- always sprawling words, often with some intention of sharing but I don’t for a whole host of reasons- I might blog about those reasons another time, I might not.  Pressing ‘publish’ is hard. I don’t even know if it’s necessary but I feel the need to try it so I am. I fear the fear will set in but ‘life is a ride to be enjoyed’- that is what I think most of the time.

The ride on one late June evening….Alice Stubbs, Amber Williams, Beks Vera Fallacy, Hollie, Smudge, Missy & Star.

Cutting grass, I love to cut grass. I don’t like others cutting my grass. I hate straight line grass cutting. Cutting grass, weeding and watering that’s where we started- at the basics, and the core of it. When doing these tasks you get to see what is new, what is happening and how things have changed. You get to take it all in – enjoy it, and feel like you are achieving things. Achieving things is important to me – it’s so easy to see a day go by and feel like I haven’t achieved anything. Simple things.

Cutting back that beautiful mallow. Amber had this role. Mallows are a favourite. Mallows mark a place of ‘home’. The word ‘home’ is a curious word- that sits in me- always wanting to create a little ‘home’ for people. ..’nesting’… trying to create little nests, havens…. like the Mallow.

Starting at the core allows time for ‘loving’, and when you get time for ‘loving’ then you feel like letting things go places. Amber got her camera out, Alice made good tea and tried to feed and clean our mini farm and I made a posy all from the garden. We got playing and exploring in all that light and colour.

We didn’t want to stop so when we went inside we carried on a little more- putting different bits of home with flowers, letting flowers make different homes.

We played with the flowers and they let us- like little fairies they got on board the ride… or did they carry us there. Who knows?! It was fun though. Then we watched Eastenders….. love it!

Learning and loving to make a hand-tied Summer Posy – Thursday 9th July 7-9.30pm

Come and join me for some hand-tied posy making at the shop on Thursday 9th July, from 7pm to 9.30pm. Small group size… comfy, down to earth, Tea/coffee, biscuits and a lot of love – £20 per person. You will take away your creations at the end of the evening.

What we will do…

  • Learn how to make an informal hand- tied posy from start to finish including how to choose and prepare flowers and foliage.
  • Explore flower meanings and languages – how to give flowers that say all the things we can’t.
  • Learn some techniques for making more formal hand-tied bouquets … still very Vera style though!
  • Love flowers!

Tussie-Mussie Workshop at Arnos vale

Join us at Arnos Vale Cemetery ‘Underwood Centre’ at 1pm on Sunday 10th May for a 2.5 hour Tussie-Mussie workshop…

In the Victorian era, “Tussie-Mussies” were floral bouquets used to convey messages with plants, herbs and flowers.  Those could be messages of friendship, romance and disdain (hopefully not too much of this). Vera will give you a little history and then work with you to create Tussie-Mussie bouquets using fresh flowers, herbs and foliages that bring together old and new flower languages and get you expressing yourself with flowers.
