Flower Stave Workshops 

Flower staves are a unique part of the Ladies Day Parade and these workshops will show participants how to make their own, as walkers did in the past.

CAN Group has been working with the Female Society and Neston Flower Society to offer workshops in schools and to the public, showing the history and techniques of creating flower staves. Up until recently, ladies would create flower staves using seasonal flowers from their own gardens. Nowadays, many walkers choose to buy their staves from local florists but these workshops gave ladies and children the chance to create their own, using fresh or artificial flowers.
