With thanks to Andrew Bottley and Alan Wheeldon for introducing Natalia to us!
Natalia Shlyapina is a floral designer from Tyumen, Western Siberia. She first studied her craft at the International School of floral design in Moscow called “Nicole,” which just happens to be the most famous in the vast country of Russia.
Since then she has perfected her skills, having studied with several international masters, Peter Hess and Gregor Lersh to name but two.
In her day job, Natalia is the head of floral design at “Zelen,” which means “Green” in Russian, this is the biggest and best floral and garden center in the region. So, why is she here? Natalia was visiting her partner when the lockdown came into force and her flights were cancelled.
Natalia started to miss her work and expressed a desire to do some work when she saw big piles of branches at the rugby ground in Wisbech. Her partner made an enquiry to Wisbech in Bloom, the result is the fabulous display we now have in St Peter’s church yard.
