A day long course aimed at those who want to learn the basics in floristry, either to use at home or to give you the confidence to start working as a florist.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
We will start the day with a chat about how The Hiden Collective began and give you lots of tips and advice on starting up your own business.
We will demonstrate how to select the best blooms, choose lovely colour combinations and create shapes.
We will also show you how to condition and prepare your flowers.
Next we will teach how to make and wrap a hand tied bouquet and then you will be able to make your own bouquet.
Then we will demonstrate how to arrange flowers in a vase without flower foam.
It will then be your turn to try out the techniques you’ve learnt by creating your very own centrepiece in a glass vase and of course using plenty of beautiful seasonal blooms.
Following lunch, we will focus on larger scale floral arrangements using sustainable methods to arrange with, and you will each have a go at creating your own floral masterpiece in a large vessel.
We will use lots of British flowers and foliage for this class
We encourage you to bring your own cameras/smartphones to document your work through the day.
All flowers and materials and refreshments will be provided. Bring a big, strong bag to take your creations home in.
We look forward to getting flowery with you!
