Reaseheath to host world famous floral designer

Florists and flower arrangers will have a rare opportunity to watch world famous floral designer and author Gregor Lersch at a lecture demonstration at Reaseheath College and University Centre Reaseheath in Nantwich on Monday April 3.

Gregor is a Master of Master Florists, the highest possible accolade, and has presented demonstrations and tutored workshops in more than 32 countries and written numerous floral design books. He is well known for his trend setting design styles and his lecture demonstrations typically cover contemporary techniques and principals, mechanics, shape and composition, sustainable strategies and organic materials.

The event is suitable for a wide range of flower lovers, from professional and leisure florists and floristry students to flower and horticultural clubs and flower art enthusiasts. It is being run in conjunction with Group 2000, a NAFAS affiliated contemporary floral art and design club which meets in Northwich.

Sue Poole, Programme Leader for Reaseheath’s Floristry and Horticulture Department, said: “This will be a very special event for anyone who works with or simply enjoys flowers. Gregor is one of the most inspirational and celebrated floral designers in the world and everyone will learn something to take home along with enjoying a very entertaining evening.

“Gregor travels world wide so we feel very privileged that he has chosen to visit Reaseheath College during his very full schedule.” 

In addition to the lecture demonstration, Gregor is also spending a further three days at Reaseheath sharing his expertise with college tutors and students, and with young professionals from the WorldSkillsUK talent pool.
