Welcome to the Floral Art Group

'Earth Rise' by Kaye Buss for the Cozenton 'Focus on Rainham' May 2019

GHS Members would be welcome to join The Floral Art Group, who meet at the United Reformed Church (rear hall) - Balmoral Road, Gillingham, Kent, usually on the first and third Tuesday of the month between 7.30-9.00pm. The group will be delighted to meet anyone who is interested in enjoying this beautiful craft.

There is an active schedule of meetings, arranged in a way that enables all members to learn new skills through a programme of practical meetings, workshops, and teaching evenings throughout the year, where members share their skills.

# IMPOSED - This means we supply each member with a selection of unspecified material(s) [within a previously agreed budget] and you then prepare arrangement(s) – we’ve never seen 2 the same yet!   


We always try to give tips and recommendations for each meeting at the meeting or two in advance so you are not left pondering what to bring etc on the night.


The more experienced members are also involved on the rota for providing floral displays for Rochester Cathedral, and have provided demonstrations for local gardening centres.


The group also has a sales table, providing most items needed for floral work at much cheaper prices than florists/normal retailers.
