Kirsties Handmade Britain

Kirstie’s Handmade Britain: Floral Craft

Kirstie will be cutting a swathe through the Royal Cornwall Show when she embraces the weird and wonderful world of floral art and enters not one, but two flower arranging competitions. But this isn’t just flower arranging, it’s sculpture with flowers and it’s taken very very seriously.

The flower competition at the Royal Cornwall show is governed by the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies and anyone who enters has to abide by their rigorous rules and regulations... including Kirstie.

In the face of stiff competition, Kirstie has to learn flower arranging techniques that will give her the edge. First she masters making a miniature flower arrangement for the petite class. Then she heads to the Chelsea Flower Show for inspiration before she tackles her nemesis... the imposed.

Only the fabulously talented or the foolhardy enter this exam-like floral competition where you’re given a box of tricks and two hours to create something amazing. Will her rudimentary flower arranging knowledge stand her in good stead or will she wilt under the pressure.
