I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
— Pablo Picasso

We are very excited to be running a number of floral inspired workshops throughout the year, at a number of new and exciting venues.

Half days, full days, evenings, weekends – choose what suits you.

Wreath making workshops, flower arranging workshops, new skills, willow weaving – the list is varied and growing. Can’t see what you want? Just ask!

What all workshops will guarantee is a fun filled social experience where no previous experience is necessary. All materials and tuition are in included along with refreshments suited to the time of day (Drinks, lunch, afternoon teas – even prosecco!)  And you’ll always get to take home any creations you make.

Currently all workshops are only bookable through the hosting venues. Links are provided for booking options
