Friday 13th is considered unlucky for some but this January it proved to be a wonderfully inspiring day for both me and my lovely, talented Moss & Stone one to one workshop guest, Jay Archer. The brief was simple; just whatever - but lots of flowers and big!

So with foraged vines, hedgerow seed heads and a bright bold colour scheme we set to work in the beautifully atmospheric, candlelit, creative space of Abbey Hall in Eye. It may have been snowing outside, it may have been bitterly cold but nothing could dampen our spirits as we let our imaginations run wild. The beautiful space combined with a wide open brief was truly liberating and as the daylight diminished we were rather delighted with the wonderfully unstructured, organic, free flowing, floral story we created!
