Beginners Floristry Taster Workshop

Looking for a general overview of floristry and have no idea what course you really need or want to do? Our popular one day beginners floristry taster is designed to introduce you to floristry with lots of practise during the day.

  • 13th April 2024 - 13th April 2024
  • 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

During the day you will create a hand-tied bouquet using biodegrable packaging a buttonhole design and a seasonal arrangement in a container using sustainable material.  These are designs that you can replicate at home using flowers from your own garden or local flower market.

Where can I go from here?

The Beginners Taster Workshop is an ideal stepping stone onto these courses:
The Wedding Course
Floristry Career Course


The workshop includes all the flowers, foliage, wrappings and containers that you need to complete the item(s).

You will also be provided with tools to use during the day.   If you wish to purchase tools, we have these available and can be purchased on the day.

We suggest you bring your camera to take photos as a reminder of what you have learnt during the day.

We would recommend wearing  comfortable shoes and clothing that you don’t mind getting wet or dirty (as flowers involve a bit of both!)

You will need to bring a packed lunch with you.  Hot and cold drinks are provided.
