Workshops, Classes & Retreats
From our small corner of Yorkshire, with a garden full of flowers and foliage, and with a familiar grey-green backdrop of fields and dry stone walls that have been “built to last”, I have taught many people my way of “doing the flowers” and encouraged them to pursue their own dreams and their own way with flowers.
What you learn is up to you...
You might be new to flowers and looking for a day of relaxation, you might be a traveller in need of a break, an aspiring florist or an experienced florist in need of inspiration. Once you get in touch we will create a bespoke day, or half day, just for you. From the smallest buttonhole to the most exquisite bridal bouquet or table centre to a breathtaking installation, you choose the theme for the day.
I spend time each year teaching and training with internationally recognised floral designers and photographers. My own philosophy for life is to never stop learning and also, through kindness and generosity, to pass on to others anything that might help them in life, business and wellbeing. Many of our previous guests are now connected to each other to continue the never-ending exploration of the flowery world. I have learned something new from every one of them.

We can also help with starting or enriching your floral business or maybe improving your photography skills – whatever you need, we can set you on the right path.

From time to time we offer classes for groups, often at different places and often working with others to provide days that we know will be interesting. You can find details of our current group classes below.
One to One Classes
Our one-to-one (or one-to-two) classes run throughout the year and can be booked privately at any time. Prices vary depending on the scale of what we create. Typically a half day class starts from £275 and a full day is from £495, installation class prices vary according to scale. Prices for group classes might be less, although ‘retreats’ are priced differently.

Doing the flowers for the wedding of Rachel and Reece, on the first really hot day of the year, also seemed to bring back the colour to our lives. Working with a neutral palette isn’t that easy to achieve in June, but we managed it and the new Mr and Mrs James had the wedding of their dreams at the most tasteful location, captured by one of the best wedding photographers there is – Benjamin Wheeler.
I usually say the year really starts in April. This year was a little different. We got going in March, with a large class to
Late last year we were asked if we could help with the front cover of the Christmas edition of the Live Ribble Valley magazine. Beautifully
