Workshops for Florists & Decor Suppliers

The workshops below are beginner to intermediate workshops for florists who are starting out or who want to add  more skills to their toolbox, these will also be helpful to decor specialists who want to add more skills to their toolbox, but really anyone who is interested can book to attend one of these workshops from the DIY Bride to someone who enjoys flower arranging for a hobby.

As our workshops are very small and intimate you may even attend these if you are a super beginner.

There is enough work to go around for all of us! Sometimes as florists we don’t rub shoulders much as we are so over protective of our work and how we do things and worried someone’s going to steel our brides away, as a result we sometimes work in isolation. Let’s expand and start collaborating and nurturing each other. I can assure you when you come into my space, there is no judgement and no competition, we will all learn together!  I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with other florists/and others who wants to learn more skills and find easier or better ways of doing things. I believe we can all learn from each other.
