Floral Workshops 2024

We are offering a series of floral workshops at Seapig store near Rhosneigr, using flowers and foliage grown naturally on Ynys Môn.

 

In addition we have a special workshop in the yurt at Outdoor Alternative in Rhoscolyn in July – details below. ‘Flowers by the Beach’

 

Our workshops are friendly and informal – no experience is necessary. In our ‘jam jar’ workshops we provide tea and scones with jam and cream. In all the other workshops we provide tea, barista coffee and cake. All materials and refreshments are included and you will take home the arrangement you make.

 

The workshops will take place in Seapig’s dedicated workshop space (mostly on days when the store is closed too the public) but there will be an opportunity to look around the eco-gallery and gift shop and make purchases if desired.
