I am happy to run workshops from my home, your home or any venue within a reasonable distance from Sidmouth. Prices vary from workshop to workshop depending on the materials used, the duration of the workshop, the number of people attending, etc. Most workshops are three hours long with an average price of around £60. They can be taught on a one-to-one basis or in groups of up to 25. Many make fun and creative workshops for hen or birthday parties etc. Please get in touch if you would like me to arrange one specifically for you.

Please note that, whilst I have a wealth of enthusiasm for teaching and a huge collection of happy reviews from my students, I am not a qualified teacher, just a very dedicated floral designer with an immense love of what she does and willingness to show others how some of it is done!
