Walhampton Winter Workshops

Walhampton hosted two workshops last night for parents, friends, family and staff: expert flower arranging and Christmas cuisine!

A great start to the festive season!
Last night we welcomed parents, friends, family and staff, with mulled wine and mince pies, to our Walhampton Winter Workshops evening.
With Christmas tunes playing in the background, and the festive season very much in mind, Cheryl Burdekin led a relaxed, step-by-step floral workshop in which the group learnt how to layer up an arrangement with foliage, flowers and trimmings to achieve a stunning Christmas Centrepiece.
At the same time, Carl France was revealing chef’s secrets on how make to most out of the whole turkey and prepare a delicious and impressive feast for Christmas day, and the days to follow. The workshop attendees walked away with their culinary creations and a hamper of goodies to share with their families on Christmas day.
Huge thanks to Carl and Cheryl for hosting two very professional workshops and for everyone who attended for joining in and making it such an enjoyable evening.
“It was brilliant!  Let me know what are you planning next! Count me in!!!!”  Lily Cherpokva

“Thank you for organising last night. I really enjoyed the evening it was brilliant.
I look forward to putting everything I learnt into practice. It would be great to do another course in the future.” Yvonne Cornwell

“WOW, what a fantastic evening. Thank you so much for organising it, and to everyone who gave up their evening to put this on.  And for the wonderful Carl for all of his help and information.  Who knew exactly how far a turkey can go?! It was friendly, informal and extremely informative. If anymore evenings are planned, I will definitely do another one.”
Annette Ferré

“A huge thank you for last night’s Christmas cookery workshop. To learn those new skills from such an expert, enjoy the results at the end with glass of mulled wine, and take home that beautiful basket of goodies was such a treat.”
Dom Sykes
“The evening was brilliant, everybody I have spoken to thoroughly enjoyed it and loved and relaxed way that Carl talked us through the evening.” Nick Arnold
