Flower workshops

If you’re interested in learning how to arrange flowers or know someone who is, then you have landed in the right place! 

We deliver workshops, courses and classes for everyone - so if you're a complete beginner and want to create something for pleasure, we have many half and full day workshops, or if you are interested in becoming a florist or would like more in-depth knowledge we also have more intensive courses.

Workshops are held at our studio in Harby in the stunning Vale of Belvoir (not far from Belvoir Castle). We are also happy to deliver a workshop at your choice of venue

Gift Vouchers are available for our workshops and these make ideal presents

We can also organise floral get togethers for a group of people at our venue or at yours - ask us for more information about this -

Great for Hen nights and girlie get togethers.
