FLORAL DESIGN WORKSHOPS

I have been running ‘FLOWER WORKSHOPS’ for the last 6 years. These workshops combine aspects of floristry and flower arranging and in each one we create a contemporary and/or seasonal design for the home.

NEW! ‘DESIGNER WORKSHOPS’. These are a level up from the Flower Workshops. Here, we look at design in more detail and in each one we will create an artistic contemporary design, featuring stunning flowers and beautiful containers.

Flower Workshops

  • Do you love flowers but lack confidence to arrange them?
  • Do you want to learn more about flowers and design?
  • Are you looking for a creative outlet?

My Flower Workshops are designed around the above – enjoyment is at the core of my teaching philosophy as well as learning in a friendly and relaxed environment.

NEW! Designer Workshops

  • Do you have some experience and want to learn more?
  • Do you want to develop your design & technical skills further?
  • Are you looking for a new challenge?

My Designer Workshops are sets of 4 or 5 workshops that look at design in greater depth, how we can design with natural materials and develop technical skills. The main requirement for these workshops is enthusiasm, however some experience in floral design is useful.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the workshops suitable for the ‘inexperienced’?

Yes they sure are! The workshops were set up by Hans for EVERYONE to enjoy the beauty & creative buzz of designing with flowers – everyone has a creative bone in their body… let Hans help you to discover yours!

Are the workshops suitable for the ‘experienced’?

Yes, they are! Many flower arrangers attend for the experience of working with more unusual flowers and the enjoyment of everything being provided.

Are the workshops like formal classes?

They are in the sense of the instruction given by Hans during the demonstration of ‘how to make’ the design – however the atmosphere is very sociable and there is always lots of chit-chat: enjoying the creativity with flowers is the most important aspect of the workshops.

Is parking close by?

Yes, you can park right outside the hall.(there is also a free car park 60 yards from the hall)

Do you get to take the arrangement home?

Yes of course!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are these workshops suitable for those with no experience?

Probably not – a basic knowledge of floral design and technical skill are needed to achieve and enjoy these workshops e.g. those people that have done a basic floristry or flower arranging course or attended my regular flower workshops.

Are these workshops more like formal classes?

They are in the sense of instruction given by Hans during the demonstration of ‘how to make’ the design. Because of the higher level of these workshops, students will have to do more work and exercise more skill in creating their designs. However, enjoying the creativity of working with flowers is still the most important aspect of these workshops too!

Do you get to use more flowers than in the regular workshops?

Sometimes it will be more flowers, sometimes more exclusive (expensive) flowers or an expensive container – but YES the budget for these workshops is higher.

Is parking close by?

Yes, these workshops take place at the same venue – you can park outside the hall (there is also a free car park 60 yards from the hall)

Do you get to take your arrangement home?

Yes of course!
