Have you ever wanted to try floristry? 

After attending one of our enjoyable and informative workshops you will leave with a set of classic flower arranging skills, knowledge of contemporary design and experience in using modern methods... not to mention your stunning arrangement. 

Whether you wish to meet new people, learn a new skill, develop an existing one, or feel confident creating wedding flowers for your own or your daughters big day, we teach principles in a relaxed and straightforward manner supporting individuals in making technical, creative and aesthetic choices. We provide all necessary materials & resources, and we keep group sizes small allowing each participant to have ample time with their tutor. 

We can design bespoke private floristry workshops for your friends or colleagues; for example we can teach you how to make beautiful hand tied bouquets, wired floral crowns, posies, centre pieces, wreaths, garlands, or even use flowers as a medium to create floral art. 

In each workshop Helen uses her many years of teaching experience to ensure that each participant feels comfortable, has fun and takes away a stunning arrangement and set of skills they can feel proud of. 

Helen can be found running workshops in collaboration with UK organisations such as Fulham Palace and the RHS. In addition, she also gets invited to demonstrate and teach abroad, for example at Nordic Stella in Luxembourg.

Workshop Feedback...

Thank you so very much Helen! I really had such a great time learning how to produce my own bouquet; you’re a great and generous teacher. I really enjoyed spending the morning with you. I’ve had so many compliments. The new experience and lesson learnt was beautiful icing on a delicious cake!

Thank you so much for the fantastic workshop you ran for the Wandsworth W.I. Having never had anything to do with flowers apart from a 3 week holiday job at a florist aged 15 (mainly sweeping up!) I was fairly pessimistic about my abilities but I loved it! Everyone has been raving about what a great time they had. Looking forward to doing another of your workshops when I get a chance.
