About the workshop

We will start the day with a chat about how The Flower Appreciation Society 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. Then we will demonstrate how to arrange flowers in a vase using the grid technique. It will then be your turn to try out the techniques you’ve learnt by creating your very own centre piece in a glass vase and of course using plenty of beautiful seasonal blooms.

We will then have a delicious lunch to restore our energy levels for the afternoon’s session.

Following lunch, we will focus on larger scale floral arrangements, and you will each have a go at creating your own floral masterpiece in a large vessel.

When in season, we will use lots of British flowers and foliage for this class including some grown in our cutting garden round the corner from our studio in Hackney. We will take high res pictures of your creations which we will send you after the workshop. We encourage you to bring your own cameras/smart phones to document your work through the day.

All flowers and materials and lunch will be provided. Bring a big, strong bag to take your creations home in.

We look forward to getting flowery with you!


"I had absolutely no experience in floristry before doing Ellie & Anna's one day course but it really didn't matter. From the moment you walked into their flower-filled workshop you felt at ease, and the girls were so encouraging and inspiring, even my somewhat 'wild' first attempts made me feel proud. I couldn't recommend this course more for people wanting a taste of floristry, or even those who already have experience and want to see how the FAS' signature style can help their work. The day was well-scheduled in a relaxed environment, meaning you genuinely take away useful skills and information - and a whole lot of beautiful blooms! The course has given me the confidence to approach my local florist to help out - I couldn't have done that before. Thank you for a wonderful introduction to magical world of flowers!"
