During the session Christina will demonstrate a variety of floral arrangements celebrating the beauty of Wakehurst in autumn.

With her extensive knowledge, Christina is much in demand to run workshops on contemporary floral design topics. She enjoys weaving, plaiting and manipulating plant material in her work and regularly uses these ideas in her designs. She is fascinated by fabrics, wools, beads and inorganic materials, and incorporates these into her contemporary work. She also enjoys creating and decorating her own containers and mechanics.
