We are very excited to be launching our NEW program of Spring workshops.
We have had so many requests to run workshops throughout the year and not just at Christmas, so we are really pleased to announce three dates to add to your diaries to inspire you to get creative and learn a new skill.
Spring hand-tied masterclass
Tuesday 19th February 7-9pm - £65 per person
This is an ideal workshop for those who would like to learn the most transferable skill in floristry. Ever wondered why your flowers just don’t sit quite right in the vase or you can never get them to look like you buy in the shops. The key to this secret is the spiral technique, which locks the stems together and ensures they hold their shape when transferring them into a vase. Beginning with a conditioning and care tutorial, you will learn how to balance blooms and foliage to create a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers.
Foam free vase design
Tuesday 12th March 7-9pm - £70 per person
With the current trend to move away from floral foam towards more eco friendly methods, this workshop will show you how to create the perfect vase arrangement and give you the skills to recreate it time and again. Working with wire and tape to form a grid-like structure and starting with care and conditioning methods, we will teach you about tones, shades, colours and textures to create a beautifully balanced design.
Tuesday 16th April 7-9pm - £75 per person
Wreaths are not just for Christmas and this is the perfect opportunity to hone your skills and make a beautiful arrangement to dress your door or place in the centre of your table.
Working with the best flowers of the season, we will mix beautiful spring blooms with textural details and living bulbs. Bringing together a variety of skills, this is perfect for those who have never made a wreath design, but will also teach a few new tricks of the trade to those who might have attended one of our workshops before.
About our workshops
Workshops will be hosted by one of our talented florists who will demonstrate the skills on a step-by-step process before giving you the opportunity to recreate the design yourself. At the end of the session you will be able to take home your design ready to style your home.
Everything you need is included and they are perfect for those looking to learn basic floristry techniques.
Complimentary tea and coffee and nibbles will be on hand throughout the evening.
Our workshops will last approximately 2 hours and we will be on hand to welcome you at 6.45 for a 7o’clock start.
All classes will be held at the shop - 19 Lintot Square, Fairbank Road, Southwater, RH13 9LA. There is plenty of free parking right outside the shop.

Full payment per person will be required to secure your place. Classes are strictly limited to 8 people. Bookings are non-refundable, but can be transferred if you are unable to attend.
All your flowers and foliage, vases or containers where necessary, floristry tools and a protective apron will be provided. Tea/coffee and nibbles are also included throughout the evening.
We recommend you wear a warm jumper/cardigan and bring an extra layer with you as the shop can be a cooler climate than you might be used to.
We very much look forward to welcoming you!
We also offer a range of bespoke workshops which can be tailored to individuals, groups or companies looking to broaden their floristry knowledge. For more information, please give us a call or pop your details into our contact form and we will be in touch to discuss your requirements further.
