At the school we offer bespoke tuition for those who want to learn specific topics or simply would prefer to learn on their own. We can tailor sessions to suit your requirements and ensure that you leave ready to tackle the most complex projects!
Perhaps you have a wedding coming up and would love to be able to design the bridal bouquet, need help with ordering flowers in season or would like to do our career course on a 1-1 basis to fit around your work (perhaps over a few months.) Whatever your need will we listen and develop a course that suits just you.
Here are a few of our stories:
"With a wedding on the horizon I decided that I wanted to give doing my own wedding flowers a go. Having no previous experience of working with flowers I booked myself onto the floristry for beginners course as a taster day to see what it was all about. This day was great for people like me that want to experience the world of floristry. Sarah spent the day teaching 12 of us how to make hand tied bouquets, beautiful buttonholes and small table displays. The day was interspersed with coffee and cake and a delicious lunch. At the end of the day we were able to take our creations home and enjoy the beautiful flowers for the following days.
Having enjoyed my taster day so much I decided that I definitely wanted to give my wedding flowers a go. In order to get the exact advice I wanted for the big day, I contacted Sarah and booked in for a private days tuition. I sent over a variety of pictures as inspiration and detailed what I was hoping to cover. Sarah did not disappoint – she selected seasonal flowers to use, not only taught me how to create a bridal bouquet but also how to bind it along with how to create a table display. She even helped write a shopping list of flowers and quantities so I knew what I needed to order from the wholesaler.
This was a wonderful day which has given me the confidence and the skills to be able to create my own flowers and I would highly recommend a day with Sarah to anyone who is thinking about learning about floristry"
"Working one-to-one with Sarah is a brilliant way for me to learn with sessions tailored specifically to address the gaps in my floristry knowledge. I have learnt a huge amount within a short space of time, both in terms of theory and hands-on work, and already feel confident enough to start looking for a floristry job. The studio is a lovely place to work and Sarah's teaching style makes learning a thoroughly enjoyable experience"
"I attended a one-to-one session with Sarah in preparation for doing the wedding flowers for my sister's wedding. I was able to choose the areas that I wished to work and even chose the flowers so that I would have experience in using the flowers that my sister wanted - including the beautiful but soft and slightly floppy ranunculus! Sarah is a fantastic teach - she talked me through everything and demonstrated each element then stepped back to let me have a go. She made suggestions where she felt they were needed and answered any questions I had with great patience! I am already thinking about booking my next one to cover a different area."
