Demonstrator Profiles

NAFAS DEMONSTRATORS are qualified at Area and National level. Qualification Tests for Area Demonstrators are held regularly within the Area. Demonstrations play an important part in flower club programmes with each demonstrator creating a variety of individually tailored floral exhibits, from classical to contemporary, often influenced by nature or a trendy new idea. Audiences can enjoy a ‘live show’ combining art, horticulture and theatre.

I joined Market Harborough Flower Club in the 1960's. I became an avid flower arranger, not so different from my profession as a dress designer, still creating in the art form.
I served as our Club Chairman twice as well as President. I took a three year City and Guilds course, passed with distinctions, and decided to become a NAFAS demonstrator, qualifying in 1987. In the same year, my daughter, a qualified florist, and I opened a high class flower shop in Market Harborough. 
I passed my pre-National test but decided not to continue because of the work pressure in our very busy shop, which we had for 28 years. 
I'm a keen competitor at all levels gaining many awards, including a gold at Chelsea 2009, and also as a member of our Chelsea Area Gold Award winning team. 
I served on the Area Committee for several years as Photographic Rep. 
I've designed numerous Flower Festival over the years (one of my great loves) and the most memorable was the 40th Anniversary at Coventry Cathedral which I designed with Pearl Frost. 
My love of design techniques and flowers especially garden foliage is incorporated in all my work, across all media (contemporary, modern and traditional). Another special love is teaching, which I have been doing privately and for various organisations for many years. I recently gained a NAFAS teaching certificate and am now looking forward to visiting many more clubs.
I believe it's so important to facilitate the need to learn this wonderful art, especially as there are few outlets to learn in classes.

I am a qualified florist and have been part of the industry since 1987.
My passion for flowers has enabled me to explore different aspects of the trade from working in a Garden Centre, a high street Inter-flora Florist and then onto employment as a florist wholesaler.
Throughout this journey, I've accumulated a wealth of knowledge but what I find really appealing about working with flowers is the vast opportunity to always be able to learn more...
I gained teaching qualifications and have been a lecturer in FE teaching floristry qualifications for the past 16 years. Passing my skills and passion for flowers on to students keen to learn has been a great pleasure. 
My most recent achievement was becoming an "Area Demonstrator" for NAFAS in 2014 and I'm now enojoying the experiences which this brings.

Showcasing her love of garden plant material and having access to a wide selection of florist's flowers and foliages means that Margaret is in demand for her knowledge, sense of humour, chatty style, and varied use of plant material. 
Her titles are usually enhanced with appropriate music. 
Demonstrating has taken Margaret to many Area Members Days and AGMs, Club Open Demonstrations and giving the demonstration at the NAFAS Assembly in Swansea. 
She has demonstrated extensively in the UK, Ireland and Spain. One of her very first demonstrations when living in South Wales was to an audience of 600 WI Members.
Margaret has not looked back since.
