A warm welcome to my
Floristy Master Class Workshop at Stockbridge. ( » MAP )

This practical course is perfect for anyone who would love to become an Event Florist!

You will be able to book the full course or a day course
(any of the 5 days can be chosen).
By the end of the week the stunning rustic barn will be fully decorated with an abundance of floral arrangements in a relaxed, bohemian theme. Now, I like to make any workshop fun so there will be soft music playing in the background and a cocktail bar ready at the end of the day! Who’s in?

I started my early career as a florist at the age of 16. I then opened a local flower-shop in Sturminster Newton called Rustic Rose. I continued my passion and love of flowers for 8 years creating a huge portfolio of wedding and event arrangements as well as teaching floristry alongside at different venues.

In December 2018 I moved to London where I was a leading floral instructor at Moyses Stevens flower school at Battersea Power Station.

Another exciting story begins as I open pop up flower schools throughout the south west.

The creative workshops will start at 10am so please ensure you arrive by 9.30am at Stockbridge where we can all meet and start the day with a cup of tea or strong coffee.
