Flower Arrangements

New Workshop Dates 'Sustainable Floristry Techniques' coming soon!! Follow us on social media to be the first to know!

COMING SOON

In our 'sustainable floristry workshops' we have a very hands-on approach where participants will make their own arrangements using traditional methods like the Japanese Kaizen (better known as Flower Frog), moss, wood or chicken wire as a base for all kinds of  arrangements, and also traditional flower arranging vessels with metal cut out lids (you might have seen them in the charity shops!). And there is a small theoretical part in our workshops, too; I promise, it is not too long! We talk about where our flowers come from and what socio-economic and environmental impact the international flower trade has. We also discuss the pros and cons of floral foam and how it impacts not only the environment, but also your health! Another fun part of our workshop is to learn about seasonality and availability of English flowers. We love showing our participants the abundance of an English garden and that there is no need to ship the blooms from 6000 miles away. Forage, grow, shop local! No previous experience required!
