Meet the ‘Flower Lady’, Audrey Balderstone

IMG_4255

If you don’t already know Audrey or of Audrey, please meet this lovely lovely lady who is fondly known to many of us as ‘the Flower Lady’ because of her love of flowers and flower arranging.

Although she prefers to share her love of flowers through flower festivals, workshops and sermons Audrey has been successful in obtaining first place in all of the competitions she has entered – except one in Coventry some years ago.   The pinnacle of her career in flowers, however, was in 2015 when she and her colleague entered the Chelsea Flower Show Floral Competitions for the first time and obtained a Gold Medal. “We prayed before we left for Chelsea that God would guide my hands” she said, “and He did.” Audrey gives Glory to God alone for this success. Being able to share the gift she believes God has given her is one of Audrey’s greatest pleasures.

Screen Shot 2017-03-31 at 07.52.08

Her flower arranging efforts have been seen as far away as Australia and America, in many parts of Europe and in churches throughout UK and Northern Ireland. She has arranged flowers in Festivals in St.Albans Abbey, Canterbury Cathedral and Westminster Abbey and has also had the privilege of arranging flowers for special events in Westminster Abbey, the last as recently as October 2016.

Having served as her Flower Club Chairman and President, Audrey is presently the Vice-Chair of the Home Counties Area of the National Association of Flower Arranging Societies (NAFAS).

NAFAS has 21 Areas and one Area has the honour of staging the big display in the Floral Marquee at Chelsea each year. The Home Counties Area had the privilege of being chosen to stage the display in 2000 and although she could not work on Sabbath Audrey was still picked out of hundreds of members to be part of the team of eight. They were awarded a Silver Medal on that occasion. Audrey also served for some time as the Assistant Editor on the Flower Arranger Magazine and during those years she organised Flower Arranging weeks at Roundelwood, the former health facility in Crieff, Scotland.

In her workshops Audrey illustrates how to ‘condition’ flowers and greenery so that they last as long as possible. She also demonstrates how to make an impact with a few flowers and a limited budget as well as how to convey a message through a floral display. For beginners and those more experienced she will teach ways of manipulating foliage to create different forms and will share ideas for flower festivals and special events.

Audrey’s Flower Arranging Retreat takes place  24 to 29 September
Cost £275 (Includes:  twin bed accommodation, full board, materials and instruction)
