Work Night – 9th June, 2022

Members of the Flower Club had a most enjoyable evening on Thursday.

It was a Work Night, people came with prepared containers – inspired by Eva last month.

Almost all the arrangements were assembled without using floral foam. Hessian covered containers, fabric covered cans, woven basket, wool, tape even an unusual Swedish object was used.

Everybody had a fun night.
