Anyone feeling creative as Christmas draws closer will be able to hone their festive flair soon at a National Trust workshop coming to Wisbech.
Ann Purt, who is well known locally for her artistic talents with flowers, will be holding a festive foliage workshop at Peckover House on Saturday December 2 from 10am to 3pm.
She will be demonstrating a variety of Christmas floral arrangements before inviting attendees to create their own masterpieces using materials supplied on the day.
Suitably inspired, what better way to complete the day than a stroll through Peckover’s winter garden, said Diane Smith of Peckover.
A spokesman for Peckover House said: “It is often surprising to many visitors that autumn can be such a colourful season.
You may also want to watch:
“You don’t have to rely on the autumn leaves to give interest at this time of year: many plants have fruit, seed heads or flowers which are at their peak now.
“Our plant sales area is still well stocked with plants grown just from the garden at Peckover.
