Fierceblooms Christmas Flower Classes 2020

Online Live And Reimagined For A Virtual World

How has time has arrived at November already. Like most things this year, there is a strangeness to it, an edge, an anxiety. 

Our Canalside cutting garden has been our focus and our saving grace. Like many others though, our fierce ethical floral business, particularly our classes and tuition, has needed to change and adapt to remain relevant and viable.

So, the ever intrepid Scot is turning himself into a TV producer. As the historic narrowboats drift past on the canal with their ticking bolinder engines, we have the latest digital technology beaming from our 19th Wharf. In this new virtual Wharf world, we are making the experience as immersive and connecting as we possibly can, exploring every boundary of the technology to allow us to reach beyond our sanctuary.

We want our classes to remain warm, human and welcoming. We wanted to add an extra layer of experience beyond pressing the play button on a prerecorded  video.

The pandemic has prevented many of life’s touch points so we have especially focused on virtual connection. We want our classes to remain warm, human and welcoming. We wanted to add an extra layer of experience beyond pressing the play button on a prerecorded  video. We wanted to hear life and laughter even if we are in separate places smelling the pine and eucalyptus.

Following on from the enthusiastic response to and feedback from our online Autumn Wreath classes, we have launched an expanded collection of live online Christmas classes - "Tis The Season". 

Tis the Season online classes are run GMT, Greenwich Mean Time. We will be having 2  classes on each day.

Our live online Christmas classes are priced at £35 and every class lasts approximately one hour.

    The essence of our learning values remains the same online as face to face. Professionally run classes kept intentionally small. Sufficient time with everyone who attends. A  relaxed environment that is ideal for learning and immersing yourself in your own creative practice. It is just it all happens over the wires now.

    What is included in the class?

    Our hearts desire is to show you how you can sustainably style your festive Christmas wreath, sharing our wild garden and artisan craft with you and the beguiling beauty of the British winter.
