Such a perfect Mothers Day gift I think - especially as you can share it with her!

You can check out the wonderful Mothers Day selection here but to save you time here are my top 5 picks. it was hard to whittle it down let me tell you!

 

TERRARIUM DESIGN SCHOOL

Learn to design, plant and sustain a divine terrarium! You’ll leave having made your very own miniature, low-maintenance and on-trend biosphere.

CREATE WIRE BIRD SCULPTURES

Using different wires in black, silver, gold and brass, you will learn how to twist the wire to make a life size wire wren. Each one ends up with a different stance and look, and you can go home equipped to make a whole flock!

A NIGHT AFLOAT A CANAL BOAT

White linen in the bedroom, piles of fluffy towels and organics in the bathroom - and yes there is a bath with shower. All while you float on the Thames in the middle of London.

CHARITY SHOP HOP

Literally my dream! Each area of London has its specialty - some neighbourhoods are a dead cert for pristine vintage and designer labels, others for collectible records and magazines, or fabrics and haberdashery. Guided by an ex stylist who spent years hunting for props and wardrobe for television, you will unearth some amazing gems!

INSPIRATIONAL TALKS

An evening of literary cabaret - listen to 5 movers and shakers, talk about their passions. The subjects each month will be humorous, thought provoking and should give the brain a bit of a jolt.
