Committee: left to right

Chairman – Pauline Foster, Vice Chairman – Jo Smith, Jenni Kirkby, Treasurer – Di Smith, Secretary – Diana Knight, Jayne Merriman


Membership is open to paid up members of a Flower Club in the North Midlands Area who hold a recognised teaching qualification and also hold a recognised Flower Arranging qualification at minimum Level II.

We run classes out in the community and visit Clubs to teach from beginner to advanced level. We also organise regular training sessions for ourselves to keep up-to-date with trends and advances in floral design and attend shows and events to promote flower arranging.

Via the Chairman, Pauline Foster on 01427 628243, jigsawtc@hotmail.com or any member of the committee. Details are also given below of teachers currently offering classes in the community.
