Tea/coffee and cakes will also be included.
Spaces are limited so please book early. The workshop will be held at Far From The Madding Crowd in the village of Leavenheath, CO6 4PU. We will be in touch nearer the time with the exact location and any further information. Tickets are non-refundable.
Gaye is be based here in the Dedham Vale, where she grew up with a mother and Grandmother who both inspired her to work with flowers.
Her career began in London when she opened her own flower stall near their first home in vibrant Portobello Road. After this came ten years back in Dedham where her business flourished. It was here that she got to know – and to work with – many fantastic local venues.
In 2005 her family moved to historic Savannah Georgia – possibly the USA’s most romantic location for destination weddings. She quickly became very busy – not just with weddings, but with charity balls, special occasions, and – of course – debutante parties. The amazing events team at SCAD – the Savannah College of Art and Design – also kept her very busy. Working in America gave her work a contemporary edge.
In 2013 Gaye moved back to East Bergholt, just two miles from Dedham. Here she finds inspiration every day, thanks to the beauty of the surrounding countryside.
