One of my (Clemmie) jobs is working with the Gypsy and Traveller community in London. Last week I held a workshop making wreaths. As the trees are bursting with amber and gold we thought we would reflect these autumn tones in our wreaths. Flowers arranging is an old tradition of Gypsies and so we all learnt tips from one another. Next month we will be making more traditional Christmas wreaths. We normally learn literacy and computer skills, but we will ditch this and get festive!
Following a summer of weddings and building up our portfolio we have spent the recent autumn evenings around the kitchen table. After a day working on our consecutive projects, the babies is in bed and we have popped open a bottle of wine - we have been plotting and design our new venture : Theatre of Flowers.
