Is the rain ever going to end?! It’s all I have to say about it my friends. It’s grim. Thankfully, we have lots going on here at Floral Rebellion HQ! I had a jolly out to the lovely Salisbury Stitch and Textile Group in Harnham. We chatted about floristry, willow, basket weaving,  probably waffled on […]

Willow workshops and Markets galore!

Hello dear friends, how are you all? I tend to take a while to myself at the start of the year. It gives me a chance to calm down after the run up to Christmas with wreaths, workshops and gift bouquets a plenty, but also lets me get most of the worst month of the […]

New year, new skills

Well friends. It is that time of year where it just feels time is running away with me, maybe it is all the rain water, it is just getting washed away in the deluge. It has been grim of late, dear readers. Life here at Floral Rebellion has been juggling mostly. My learning is still […]

It’s the most wonderful (busy) time of year!

Hello dear friends, How are we all feeling now that British summer time is officially been and gone. We are in that grotty old season that some people, for reasons I cannot fathom, relish. Cold nights, dark mornings, leaves falling from the trees. Nope, not for me. Anywho, my moaning won’t change it. We are […]

And… we’re off!

sorry folks, I feel I may have neglected you for a while.  You may remember in my last blog, that we were in the process of applying for our Roving Traders Licence, that would enable us to sell from the tow path, wherever we moor up. There was a bit of a pause while I found […]

Roving Traders

Well that snow caught me out! I had no idea that was on it’s way. I had squirreled myself away at Floral Rebellion HQ, bad news dear reader, I had the lurgy. I hate being ill, it makes me feel feeble. So I am happy to report it is now well on it’s way. Like […]

Exciting News!

Well, that’s all folks, Valentine’s is done and dusted! After our jolly out along the Kennet and Avon (that I told you about in my last instalment) willow weaving and Valentines planning was in full swing.
