The fun, relaxing evening takes place at the Lost and Found at 7pm on Wednesday, October 18.

Florist Sarah Jackson said: “I believe flowers have a big impact on mental health.

“When people come to my classes they always say ‘Mine will be rubbish’ and I promise everyone that will not happen.

“When they complete the task and see what they can do with flowers, they are amazed and leave so happy.

“Mental health is an important issue to me and my family.

“We have seen first-hand how mental illness can affect a person, so when we were approached by Stable Minds we were happy to help.”

Studies have shown that engaging with flowers and nature can have a soothing and uplifting impact on your mental health.

The colours, textures, and scents of autumn flowers and foliage can evoke feelings of joy and nostalgia, providing a therapeutic experience.

Participants will have the chance to craft their own unique wreaths under the guidance of experienced florists, Sarah and Jess Oliver-Clewes, using a variety of seasonal flowers, foliage, and decorative elements.
