“Some flowers for you

In a jar

Because they are pretty –

Just like you are.

If you like them

I’ll be happy and whistle

But if you don’t well,

That would sting like a thistle”


This flower arrangement was made with love and solidarity during the Bread&Roses workshop at Cause 2 Create Festival November 2016.

All proceeds from this workshop went to funding more workshops for refugee women, helping them in a myriad of ways while they seek work and living status in the UK – a process which can last for over 15 years. To find out more about Bread&Roses please check out this link:
