Make a Fresh Flower Fascinator at Outlaw

Make a Fresh Flower Fascinator with Sarah Hill FlowersFancy having a go at a bit of florestry?  Outlaw No.3 (Saturday 1 November) is the perfect opportunity to do just that.

Pop over to Sarah Hill Flowers stand and try making a beautiful fresh flower fascinator during her drop-in workshop sessions.

With some simple florestry techniques Sarah will teach you how to turn a few flowers and some wire into a pretty flower hairpiece.  Once you’ve mastered a few basic steps you can take your new-found skill and use it in lots of ways (how about fresh flower napkin rings for your Christmas table or jazzing up your party outfit?)

So don’t miss out – head on over to Sarah’s stand and get making!

Taking place at Outlaw on Saturday 1 November. These are drop-in workshops run from Sarah’s stand within the main exhibition hall throughout the day. 

It will cost £3.50 per person and will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Join our FREE ‘Make & Take’ Session at Outlaw

decorative-pom-pomsWe’ve got something special (and rather exciting) to announce that’s taking place at Outlaw No.3 on Saturday 1 November.

You can join Pam Booth from Paper Gardens & the Outlaw Team to take part in a mini ‘Make & Take’ a Pom session – we’ve nicknamed it a Pomathon!

Watch Pam make a decorative Pom and then join in and follow along with your free kit. The best part is you’ll be able to take it away after the session ready to hang in your home or pop on a gift decoration!

Just one caveat – we’re limited to just 30 ‘making’ participants and places will be on a first come first serve basis. The session will begin at 2.45pm, but make sure you get your seat early. This is a live demonstration in our demo theatre and different from our workshop programme.

So get ready – Sit down, relax and make a Pom!

Session begins at 2.45pm on Saturday 1 November in the demonstration theatre at Outlaw Craft Fair, Penwith College. ‘Making’ places limited to 30.
