AUTUMNAL NEW ENGLAND INSPIRED FLOWER ARRANGING WORKSHOP

I wanted to create a unique experience for you, that invites you into my world of creativity, with gorgeous flowers, foliage, enchanting music, delicious food, set in my London Studio with a brightly lit conservatory and large garden that is a country getaway in the heart of the City and the perfect backdrop for photographs. An experience that will stay with you forever and allow you to take what you will from what you have learnt and apply it to your own lifestyle.

Since it will be autumn, my favourite season for foliage and flowers, and such an iconic time aesthetically in the US, we will be incorporating my love of the autumn hues that New England is so famous for. I will be drawing inspiration from the sites and sounds that are so fondly embedded in my memory such as freshly pressed apple cider, corn maizes, pumpkins, that fresh crisp air and the crunching of leaves beneath my feet. My grandparents' red barn out back that used to host my Grandpa's airplane that smells of dust and vintage wares that now plays home to my vintage items that I have yet to ship back! I will be teaching you with these feelings in mind and want to try my best to recreate this for you in all five senses.

Day description:

Using autumn foliage we will create a wild table arrangement in the American farm, fine art style that is so sought after these days. Petals and leaves will flow over the sides, spilling out while the flowers embed themselves within the arrangement to create a gorgeous harmony between colour and space. 

We will then create a luscious bouquet using flowers in a similar colour palette to compliment our table arrangement.

Who is this workshop for?
  • Anyone, whether floristry is your passion, business or hobby

  • People who are unsure of their style and want to refine it

  • People who want to learn new floristry skills, or hone the ones they already have
