Ring A Roses – Flower Garland Workshop | UK
Ring A Roses is an all-inclusive mobile craft workshop where we teach people to make their own flower garlands (floral headdresses). They are more than just a craft workshop, what they offer is a tailored experience. From the initial fitting, where you watch a length of willow being expertly twisted into your base ring which is then precisely fitted to your head. You then walk into their unique workspace which is full to the rafters of flowers, beads, feathers, ribbons, bells and butterflies.
Their staff will give a comprehensive, interactive demonstration of the necessary techniques and use of the tools and equipment. You are then handed your own basket to gather flowers in and told you can use whatever you like to create your own bespoke headdress. Your basket will quickly fill up with treasure as you wander round rummaging in baskets, looking through bead boxes and pigeonholes. It takes anywhere between 30 minutes and 3 hours to make your headband, depending on how involved you become. Their staff are always on hand to offer advice and assistance.
Ring A Roses will need an area measuring 7m x 10m for the yurt. For indoor events, all they require is an area to set up their tables and furniture, size dependent on the number of guests. They bring everything they need with them, and they dont need any power so setting up in the middle of a field is easy. For morning events, the yurt needs to be erected the day before.
The yurt is not necessary for all events, especially indoor events. The yurt is not included in the cost, and is added as an extra if needed.
Standard Length of Performance:
Ring A Roses can be hired for up to 8 hours a day.
