Fierce Flower Classes & TutelageDetails of wild garden style workshops and one-to-one intensives
You don't need me to tell you that this year is different. The year the world changed. What hasn't changed though is our fierce, uncompromising commitment to seasonal, ethical flowers. British flowers remain at the heart of our floral business for both environmental and aesthetic reasons. However, we have needed to adapt our business to continue to thrive.
Sharing how I "do the flowers" is something I adore still, be that for individual tutelage or in our seasonal flower workshops.
For reasons that require no explanation here, no classes are happening face to face. I have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of my classes in our local village hall for 2020.
Our fierce flower classes have continued however. Digitising our floral experiences has been one of the successes of this year. Digitising but not depersonalising.
Always at the heart of every one of our flower workshops are British seasonal flowers and environmentally friendly designs. I watch the narrow boats and the seasons drift by. My canalside cutting garden is both the source and the inspiration for the ingredients I provide to teach our wild garden style of designs.
OUR NEW FIERCE ONLINE FLOWER CLASS 1-2-1s
Holding our 1:2:1 wild garden style classes has enabled us to reach others in a way unimaginable previously. Connecting to sustainable growers and florists around the world has been an amazing and joyful experience, all from our 19th century wharf with some great IT to the comfort of your own sanctuary.
Frankly, those conversations and interactions have kept us sane in a year none of us could have imagined.

British flowers are key to my wild garden style floral design for both aesthetic and environmental reasons.
