Phoenix Garden


Thursday 3rd August – 11:30 – 13:00

Join Spencer and our new Garden Club every Thursday morning, between 11:30 and 13:00. Each session, Spencer will focus on a different aspect of gardening.

Our next club, which will be on Thursday 3rd August, Spencer will show you the wonderful art of “Flower Pressing”. In this session, you will be foraging for flowers and leaves in the garden to take to be pressed and preserved for the following week’s garden crafts activity.

Flower Pressing is a time-honoured tradition and a great way of capturing a unique impression to create a treasured keepsake or gift.

Joining the club is free and there is also Tea and Coffee
