Floristry Workshops, Norfolk

Flower arranging and floristry courses

Flowers are for sharing and I am passionate about the language of flowers and the special message they convey from a giver to a recipient.

 Share my knowledge

As a trained florist and a highly-experienced floristry tutor, who has worked at many locations and venues across the country, I gain immense pleasure in passing on my knowledge and expertise through a range of floristry workshops and flower arranging classes delivered at the Norfolk School of Floristry or private tuition at the home of Crown House Flowers at Horsham St Faith, Norfolk.

Workshop feature

Whether you are a beginner, or have more experience, I would love to share my knowledge of flower arranging with you – either on an individual basis, with private tuition arranged by appointment, or in courses for larger groups.

How it works

I will provide the flowers, apron, equipment and other materials to allow you to enjoy the opportunity to learn new skills with confidence in a relaxed setting. At the end of a fun day, you will be in a position to take home the floral design you create within the workshop. Classes are relaxed and suitable for all ages.
