Workshops are our specialty. They are a complete feast for the senses. A perfect day away from the stresses of everyday life. Do you want to:

  • Make a bouquet from beautiful flowers?
  • Create a table arrangement?
  • Learn how to make the perfect buttonhole; corsage; floral crown?
  • Make stunning Christmas wreaths and garlands?
  • Create your own wedding flowers?

Our workshops are relaxed and informative and are ideal for a small group of friends wishing to spend a day together or individuals wanting to experience something new but in a friendly environment.

Whether you are a newcomer to flowers or an aspiring florist looking for fresh ideas, we can provide the workshop for you.

If you are looking for a special way to celebrate a birthday, mothers day, hen party or a corporate team building event then one of our floral days could be just the thing to make it memorable.

In our spacious Lancashire workshop you will work alongside Sarah to make a beautiful, scented, floral creation to take home.

We provide all equipment. No previous floristry experience is needed but we guarantee that you will love what you make.

Delicious food and a very warm welcome is provided by Christie. From Fresh Coffee and cake on arrival to a 3-course lunch (with wine) in the dining room or on the lawn, Christie’s aim is to ensure that no one leaves hungry!

We are also able to host workshops at outside locations including corporate events and team building days.

We host evening workshops and afternoon tea workshops and we offer gift tokens.

One to One Workshops

Sarah spends time each year training with internationally recognised floral designers. Her philosophy for life is to ‘never stop learning’. Our bespoke workshops are ideal for anyone wanting to develop their floral skills, from complete beginners, to those who want to create their own wedding flowers and those who want to try out new designs- large or small. These workshops can be booked at any time by contacting Sarah.
