Natural style flower arrangement

One-to-one sessions

These classes can be tailor made to your interest. Typically they would focus on a particular type of arrangement such as a hand-tied bouquet, a table centrepiece, table runner, bridal hair flowers, large scale arrangement or similar. We will be using seasonally available flowers and foliages, wild ingredients with beautiful ribbons, vessels and both traditional and more natural floristry techniques will be demonstrated. During the class you will learn about structure, colour palette, seasonal ingredients for both market and garden flowers and how to best use them in any particular arrangement. You will be guided through the design process step-by-step and after the session you can take home your own beautiful creations. These classes are suitable for people with all levels of experience interested in floristry, those with an interest in creating and styling particular floral settings and floral photography.

Styling advice will be given throughout the session. Bring your camera to document the day.

Classes are held north of Brighton with easy access by train from London. Sessions typically run from 10am-2pm.

Price: £300 including all ingredients and light refreshments throughout the day.
