Floristry Basics

This workshop is the perfect introduction to all things floral! Learn how to buy the freshest flowers, look after them when you get them home and arrange them in a vase to maximum effect. During the workshop we cover design principles, colour selection and flower shape combinations to make a beautiful display you can take away to admire at home. This course is ideal to gain confidence and provides lots of useful tips.

 

Hand-tied Bouquet

The go to floral gift – you will use a selection of gorgeous fresh blooms and foliage to make a beautiful hand-tied bouquet. We will discuss the construction and proportions of the bouquet and how the flowers are best placed within the design for maximum effect. You will also learn how to gift wrap the bouquet for that wow! factor.

 

Autumn Wreath 

We start off by creating a moss base, then incorporate seasonal foliage, hydrangeas and seed heads to make a stunning wreath.

Christmas Workshops (1 December onward) 

All of my wreath workshops are willow frame and moss based in order to reduce the use of floral foam and plastic waste. Do not be alarmed, everyone can make these beautiful wreaths! We start by constructing a moss and willow base then incorporate gorgeous scented foliage, pine cones and cinnamon sticks to make a stunning wreath.  

I also offer festive hand-tied bouquet and arrangement workshop, either all round table centres or long and low arrangements perfect for mantlepieces and buffet tables. These do use floral foam as a base so they remain gorgeous and fresh for the festive season.

Floral basket

Using a selection of scented, beautiful blooms and foliage you will make a fabulous all round centrepiece that looks amazing from every angle. In this workshop, we will use biodegradable floral foam to secure our floral materials and consider colour combinations and design principles as we create our fabulous designs.

 

Spring Wreaths

We will make a traditional moss base, then incorporate spring bulbs, seasonal flowers and foliage to make a stunning living wreath that can be displayed either on your door or as a fabulous table centre.

Calling all budding florists age 5-11! Come along and make a gorgeous hand tied posy of spring flowers for that special someone in time for Mothering Sunday, while the grown up with you grabs a coffee and some cake (not included in workshop fee)

 

Spring Bulb planter

Calling all budding florists age 5-11! Come and plant some lovely spring bulbs in a specially decorated pot, perfect for Mothering Sunday, while the grown up with you grabs a coffee and some cake (not included in workshop fee)

 

Summer Flower Frenzy 

Many of us have beautiful gardens, especially in the summer months – why not cut a selection of your favourite flowers and foliage and bring them along – I will teach you how to make your selection look fabulous, by either making a bouquet or a floral display. Bring along a favourite vase or container if you like too – if you don’t have a garden, please buy flowers you would like to have arranged instead, it’s entirely your choice! This is a great workshop to see lots of different ways to use fresh flowers and foliage in one hit and get loads of inspiration for more floral designs.
