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.

Do Your Own Wedding Flowers

Helping friends with their wedding flowers is how my business started.  It is such an honour and a gift to be able to do it, but it can be stressful too. What to order, how much it will cost, working out your timings, getting your flowers transported etc. All those sleepless nights! 

This is a 1:1 class (or suitable for two people) and it’s split into two sessions: 

The morning is a planning session. We’ll talk through the wedding, work out the step by step plan for the week and assemble your flower order.

The afternoon is a practical session. We’ll make a chosen design together, for example a bridal bouquet and buttonholes.

Dates - various.

Cost: £295 including lunch and all materials
