The National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS) is a network of 21 geographic areas, comprising around 1,300 flower clubs and 75,000 members.
The 54 affiliated Flower Clubs in the Berks, Bucks and Oxon area meet regularly (usually monthly) for flower arranging demonstrations, workshops, talks, competitions, visits to places of floral interest and social events.
New members and visitors are welcome at all skill levels, even if you only want to sit and watch. Contemporary floral design groups run workshops for more advanced designers. Local colleges run leisure classes as well as diploma level floral art and design courses.
