International Demonstration 2: ENTENTE CORDIALE

United Kingdom

William (Bill) Dixon started his working career as an Interior Designer and continued his own successful business in Lancashire until his recent retirement. However, in the early 1990's he discovered the joy of flower arranging which led  him to obtain a City and Guilds qualification  in floral  art.  His love for the art  form and his natural creativity carried him on to become a lead designer, NAFAS national demonstrator and teacher in the UK and several countries abroad. Bill was part of the UK North West Area team at Chelsea 2011 and led the RHS Tatton Flower Show team in 2014 achieving gold  medals at both of these  shows.  He has won several other gold medals at National and World Shows, and was part of the design team for Winchester Cathedral's Flower Festival in 2015. He has been selected to be lead designer for Blackburn Cathedral's Flower Festival in 2016.
