Gardens and Flowers with Florence

Create a pretty painted flower pot to use in your own garden, patio or other indoor or outdoor space. Take your pot home where you can fill it with earth and a small flower or seeds and watch it grow!

Florence knew that fresh air, exercise and being in nature was important for everyone to stay fit and healthy. She designed hospital wards so that her patients got plenty of sunshine and fresh air. And there is even a Nightingale Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show this year to celebrate her bicentenary. So come along and join us in this garden-themed craft!

And discover more about Florence and her passion for nature; come along and meet her at 11.00am and 12.30pm. She’ll tell you all about her life and how she became the most famous nurse in the world, against her parents’ wishes.

The pots are £1.00 each and we will supply pots and paints. Soil and plants not included.

Florence performances at 11:00am and 12:30pm (30-40min in duration)
Flower pot painting crafting at: 2-4pm (last seating 3:30pm)
