Ashton Hayes and Tarvin Flower Club Meeting on 11th March

Home » Newsroom » Ashton Hayes and Tarvin Flower Club.

This meeting was very different from usual with Ruth Hughes coming to show us some of the craftwork that interests her.

She firstly showed us some Christmas ideas, with a groan from the audience at the mention of Christmas in March!

She demonstrated the method of making artichokes which are an effective way of making a decoration by folding and pinning ribbon onto a sphere. She also showed us a variation with the fabric pinned to rings. The artichokes were then arranged in a basket to show the full effect.

One of her favourite crafts is cracker making so she demonstrated by making 4 with Easter egg fillings and displayed them attractively. A lucky lady won these in the raffle.

For Mother's Day she had a large gift cracker which could be opened for gifts but she did a flower arrangement as an explosion in the centre.

We were not allowed to just sit and watch so it was our turn. Ruth had cut some ribbon for us to weave into a small bag which could contain small Easter eggs and hang on a branch. Everyone joined in and managed to obtain a result. This was a very refreshing change and gave us some good ideas.

Our April meeting on the 8th will be a return to flowers when Sharon Nolan, our own area demonstrator, will give us ideas on using supermarket bunches.
