Tuesday 20 - Thursday 22 June 2017

This June we are delighted to host a floral design retreat at Tilton House in the rolling Sussex Downs, drawing inspiration from the painterly interiors, ceramics and walled gardens of neighbouring Charleston Farmhouse. The country home of the Bloomsbury group, Charleston is rife with colour, artistic expression and atmosphere, and the perfect source of inspiration for the flower arranger. The retreat will focus on evoking a sense of place through floral design, of capturing the essence of your environment through the use of colour, form and choice of ingredients. Taking cue from what is in season in the gardens of Charleston we will use an abundance of blowsy June roses, home-grown garden flowers in nuanced colours and wild foraged materials from the surrounding lanes and hedgerows.

Places for this retreat are limited. Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. Includes: two nights' accommodation (shared rooms only), supper on Tuesday and Wednesday night, lunch on Wednesday and breakfast on Wednesday and Thursday morning at Tilton House, Curator's Tour and tea at Charleston Farmhouse, floral design tutorial and demo, all flower materials and a bespoke ceramic vessel to take home. Not included: transport to and from the retreat, transport to Lewes.
