Join us on Friday 17th September for a floristry workshop with Dancing Bee and Quinta de Sant’Ana. We’ll share a bit about the Quinta’s journey into organic farming and wine production, and teach you how to create hand tied bouquets with beautiful, seasonal flowers picked that morning at Quinta de Sant’Ana. We’ll also provide some light snacks and delicious organic wine from the estate.
About Dancing Bee
Dancing Bee is a new floristry company bringing fresh, seasonal flowers to Lisbon. I provide floral styling for events, and teach floristry in workshops. My bouquets and floral arrangements are designed to look like they’ve been picked straight from the garden, often because they have. My natural aesthetic and preference for organic, seasonal produce comes from a childhood spent largely in the garden and a weekend job in my 20s with one of London’s premier florists, Rebel Rebel. Bees do a special ‘waggle dance’ to help their hive find good sources of pollen. I started Dancing Bee after doing the flowers for my wedding in an old Beehive in Alentejo.
About Quinta de Sant’Ana
Self-taught in horticulture and floristry, Ann and James Frost dedicate the fertile valley bottom of their vineyard to grow organic flowers & to create arrangements that spread joy. Flowers help reconnect with the natural world and we feel that in our broken society this is needed like never before. We sustainably grow over one hundred varieties for artisanal flower designers and for our own weddings. We both love working with plants, and our initial idea to produce enough of our own flowers for weddings soon expanded into a bigger project, when we became aware of the hunger for naturally grown blooms. Regardless of all the gigantic learning curve we face with seasonal, pesticide and fungicide free farming, we know that we will produce heaps of beauty and joy with this latest project. Wish us luck!
