It would have to be a flower arranging one for me! Probably the strawberry sorbet bouquet.... I have never mastered the art of flower arranging and just plonk them in a vase...

Thanks for letting me know about this,its just up the road and when the kids are back to school but I'm not! I'd love to have a go at making the silk scarf, they look beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win!

I would like to join in the Jo Fairley's workshop, "Improve Your Sense of Smell". I am always impressed when friends discuss perfumes as I often find one hard to distinguish from another. I feel I'm missing out on having something sensible to add to discussions and the workshop is also likely to help me make wiser choices when choosing presents for family and friends. @pjo77

Machine embroidery would be my choice, thank you

So much choice! Silk scarves or free machine embroidery interest me the most I think- I'd love to try to create beautiful colour mixes and embellishments.
Must look into this show some more!
