Summer Flowers in Lanreath Church

The next in our very populare series of tutorials on flower arranging in churches will take us to the church of St Marnach in Lanreath. 

Tuesday 7 May 2019 – 10am-3:30pm

The deadline for this event has been extended to Monday 8th April, so if you worried about missing the date, you still have time!

This very old building, which has been repaired rather than restored, gives the effect of age and a special completeness. In particular it has a fine rood screen, recently restored, dating from 1520 with the original paintings in a few of the lower panels. It has a wealth of rich carvings – the pulpit, font, prayer desks and the Grylls monument – and offers us a wonderful venue for trying our skills at suitable flower arrangements.

As always the emphasis will be on using garden flowers. Those attending are asked to bring with them greenery and blooms and will, of course, be free to take home what they have created, but no doubt the church members will be very pleased if you choose to leave them there in situ. The arrangements created by the tutors will, of course, stay to decorate the church for the Sunday services.

This is not a very large building but will be able to accommodate, we hope, many members wanting to “have a go”. Arrive for 10am and bring a packed lunch. Beverages will be available during the day and, on application, you will be sent a full list of what to bring.
