Thoroughly enjoyed the “Scent of Summer” full day workshop on Saturday.
Abi provided the most heavenly blooms for us to work with and gave us expect tuition, allowing us to leave at the end of the day with arrangements to die for!
Abi is artistically talented and a natural teacher: She inspired us beyond our natural abilities. In addition, the afternoon candle making session with Mike was fun and I adore the unique scented candles that I hand poured! Will be back!

The second in a Seasonal series of masterclasses, spend a day celebrating the abundance and gilded colours of Autumn & Fall with a Workshop exploring the inextricably linked relationship between Flowers & Fragrance... as the weather cools, and we turn our attention inwards, to our homes, learn how to celebrate the season and bring the outside, in!

In the morning, PETAL studio’s Abigail will demonstrate how to create a lush, bountiful, and richly textured Autumnal arrangement using eco-friendly Oasis free techniques. You will then have the opportunity to design your own arrangement to take home (similar to the one pictured), rich with the textures of Autumn- all under Abigail’s expert guidance and tuition.

Abigail always tries to source UK & Irish grown blooms and be in tune with what is growing natively season on season, and these, along with foraged leaves, branches, fruits, seed pods and even some gorgeousness from her own garden, will have you in floral heaven!

Following a delicious, antipasti lunch, the afternoon will focus your attention on scent building and candle making with one of Belfast’s celebrated “Bearded Candle Makers”.

Mike will skilfully guide you through designing an exquisite fragrance blend for Scented Candles that captures the spirit of Autumn, using the most luxurious essential oils, and eco-friendly soy wax, inspired by the blooms used in the earlier part of the day and the scent stories the Season of Autumn holds. Your very own, unique, bespoke fragrance, will then be used to scent three hand-poured, soy wax candles to take home… Mike will then turn his attention to teaching you how to make your very own beeswax tapered candles!

While the candles set, the day ends with a relaxing coffee and chat, along with some delectable treats supplied by The Lily Pink Bakery- Belfast’s coolest cupcakes!
