Judith Blacklock gave us a personal tour of the New Covent Garden. She showed us her favourite shops and gave us great buying tips. My favourite store was a supply shop where I bought a big bottle of floral preservative and a gadget to comfortably strip the thorns of the vast quantity of roses I purchased.
We went back to Judith's classroom and after tea, we began creating our own flower arrangements. I was quite pleased with my "masterpiece" and it survived for at least two weeks. Judith is famous among floral designers and her brochures indicate her courses cost about £200 per day. The KCWC ladies got quite a bargain.
