The Flower School

Whether you’re a professional florist or a flower enthusiast new to the art of floristry, the Flower School is the perfect place to allow your creativity to take over. Working with a beautiful selection of seasonal, freshly cut flowers and foliage you'll delve into the world of floral design, working with flowers, textures and colours you’ll love with expert tuition.

SUMMER WORKSHOP - Sunday 24th June

Deer Park Country House Hotel, Weston, Honiton, Devon, EX14 3PG

12.00.p.m. to 5.00.p.m.

June is one of the loveliest times of the year, and the perfect season for Summer flowers. Think abundance, think big blowsy Peonies, beautifully fragrant Sweet Peas, Stocks, herbs and roses that create a highly scented floral design - enjoy a day being creative at our Summer Flowers course.

This one day workshop is for anyone who loves to fill their home with flowers, and has a flair for creativity; the flower enthusiast rather than the established florist. You will have expert guidance on creating a beautiful hand tied bouquet, and a ravishing table centrepiece. Choose from a beautiful selection of seasonal flowers to create something unique to you, and to take home with you at the end of the day.

£150 including all flowers, materials, refreshments and lunch.

AUTUMN FLOWERS WORKSHOP - Tuesday 25th September 

Pentillie Castle, St Mellion, Saltash PL12 6QD

10.00 a.m. - 4.p.m.

September, the season of mellow fruitfulness, and a time of richness and plenty. Join us for a fully immersive day of creativity on the glorious Pentillie estate overlooking the river Tamar in Cornwall.

The atmospheric Sawmill, hidden in the woods below the castle will be the setting and our inspiration for the day. Here we'll focus on dressing and styling this evocative building with locally sourced, seasonal flowers and foliages. We'll explore the practical techniques that go into creating large scale arrangements including arches and hanging installations , but the Sawmill itself  will set the tone for the day as we work a touch of floral magic on this wonderful old building.

£350.00 including all flowers, materials, refreshments and lunch.
