Most clubs meet once a month and you are welcome to visit to see what is on offer and hopefully join us as a member.  There is a wealth of talent within the clubs offering helpful advice, whether you are a beginner wanting to learn or a more experienced flower arranger.  In fact, if you just want to watch the wonderful demonstrations then that is reason enough to visit.
 
The floral art clubs pay host each month to talented demonstrators who delight the audience as they produce breathtaking floral displays.  This is where the inspiration flows and the latest skills and techniques are passed on for everyone to enjoy.  At the end of the demonstration these designs are raffled to raise funds for the club ~ it’s such a delight to win one!
 
In addition you will find each club organises visits to gardens of special interest, flower shows, national competitions etc.  There are also workshop days which are a “hands-on” opportunity for a chance to be tutored in the art of Flower Arranging by the experts and are always a lovely social event.  The workshops cover many interesting topics from Floristry techniques, Christmas decor, Wedding arrangements, Craftwork, Traditional & Contemporary work.  The number of workshops (and their scope) has increased over the years due to popularity for members and because they offer a great day out at an economical cost.
 
The North West Area has many Special Events throughout the year which are detailed on this website.
