Making the Ordinary Extraordinary: Reimagining the Bouquet

Tour and Talk by Lucy the Flower Hunter

8th October 2021 at 6.30pm

With a lifetime designing award-winning gardens, floral art, and self-taught photography, Lucy's work is constantly looking at ways in which we can soften and meld the boundaries between the inside and out. Capturing for a moment the fine and transitory shifts in nature, the light of the changing seasons and always, colour, form, and composition.  

Her talk and demonstration reimagine bouquets where we smell fresh herbs, choose wild strawberries, embrace overgrown hedgerow abundance with long trailing vines and simple roses with open petals in muted colours of fig and soft caramel and scents that speak of nostalgia.  She will encourage us to take pleasure from the flowers that are available as the seasons naturally dictate and appreciate the sometimes-glorious imperfection rather than always looking for the next bigger and better thing.  She will consider ways to look for wonder and beauty in the everyday ordinary and offer simple ways to bring the ‘outside in’ and turn it into the extraordinary.  

She will talk about how our landscapes and gardens have once again become our sanctuaries, offering the solace and the undemanding pleasure that nature has to offer us and that we find ourselves craving. 

Ticket include a Tour of the Flower Festival and a glass of fizz. Tours are at 6.30 and 7pm and the talk starts at 8pm

Admission: £25 

Members & Patrons and Students: £12.50
