Flower School

The Good Florist Flower School is guided by a sense of beauty, fun and freedom.

Working with flowers can be challenging and yet also a complete indulgence and joy. We have a range of classes to suit people; those who want to learn the business and art of floristry, as well as for those who want to escape for the day and immerse themselves in beautiful flowers.

All classes are taught at my floristry studio on our farm in a tranquil part of Mid Devon. Classes are relaxed and creative and offer in-depth tuition.

I also run classes at other venues , keep an eye on my Instagram for updates and please feel free to get in touch with teaching enquiries.

Natural dye class with Ros of The Natural Dyeworks

Saturday 21st March 2020, 10am-1pm

This spring workshop will focus on using botanical ingredients to make beautiful natural dyes.  We will be foraging for seasonal flowers, fruits and edibles before each making a dye bath and dying a range of colour swatches, as well as several pure silk ribbons in the final colour of your choice. 

Ros will talk you through how to prepare different fabrics through scouring and mordanting and share tips and techniques of this ancient art. 

We will discuss how to work with nature’s infinite colour palate and look at some of the different natural ingredients that can be used year round to create a range of fabrics.

Ros has worked with fabrics for over 20 years as a buyer for Habitat and has been experimenting with natural dye’s for years - all her work is chemical free. Follow her on Instagram

Price includes morning coffee and pastries from our local community bakery, as well as all materials.
