Workshops

Our flower workshops have been running since 2007 and are ever popular. Classes are relaxed, fun and informative, held at various stunning South East London venues (see individual workshop details for locations). Seize the opportunity to learn new skills and make new friends whilst being inspired by one of our experienced floristry tutors!

Our classes have also been very popular as gifts for friends and families. Gift vouchers valid for 12 months give the recipient time to choose not only a date that suits them, but also the workshop that interests them most.

Students are provided with all the fresh flowers, vases and equipment needed for the workshop, and best of all, you get to take your beautiful designs home at the end of the class! Share light refreshments and a love of all things floral – why not bring a friend along with you?

This year has been testing for us all and Covid has meant that many activities have not been able to take place. Restrictions mean that we sadly can’t have a mixed group of you all in once space, but getting floral and creative shouldn’t be cancelled! Let’s face it, we have all missed out on enough already this year! So see the NEW Virtual Home DIY workshops on offer….a great gift idea!!

Introducing…

Virtual Winter Wreath Class – via Zoom

We love our Christmas wreath making masterclasses. Not only do they fill us with festive cheer, our participants always have a fantastic time and go home with a beautiful wreath to hang on their front door. Nothing can beat the feeling of being able to proudly say, “I made that!” This year has been testing for us all and Covid has meant that many activities have not been able to take place. Restrictions mean that we sadly can’t have a mixed group of you all in once space, getting floral and listening to Bublé. However…we have decided that Christmas and all the excitement and build up shouldn’t be cancelled. Let’s face it, we have all missed out on enough already this year!

We have now launched our virtual make at home kits – full of everything you need to create a beautiful festive door wreath during a virtual masterclass with us. The kits are sent out by post in recyclable gift boxes, or delivered by hand if you live within our delivery zone. And we are so excited!!

Inside your gift box you’ll find florist scissors, a mossed wreath ring (wrapped in biodegradable plastic to retain moisture), scented pines and evergreen foliages, winter berries, a range of stunning decorative adornments, florist wires and a gorgeous fabric ribbon bow. 

You can choose one of two kits, depending on your style preference:

Once all the kits are sent out, we will email you with a link to join our Zoom masterclass so you can enjoy making the wreath with us. There is a step by step ‘how to’ in your kit but we would love it if everyone joined in together so we are on hand to guide you, capturing some of the atmosphere of a group workshop.
