Warwickshire College floristry tutors create blooming marvellous display for festival

A beautiful floral display has been created at Coventry Cathedral by tutors and students from Warwickshire College.

As part of the cathedral’s Flower Festival, floristry tutor Jane Benefield and ten students from the college’s Moreton Morrell centre decorated four of the altar candlesticks – which are nine feet tall – with their display designed around the four seasons.

Many of the elements of the design, such as lichens and pine cones, have been gathered from the college grounds.

Jane said: “We’ve been working on the designs since before Christmas so we’re looking forward to showing our display in such a beautiful building.

“This will be a really valuable experience for the students to be part of this major floristry event. The students have been involved in the design, planning and creation of the arrangements and we can’t wait to get started.”
