Whether you fancy trying a new hobby, adding to your existing skills, or you just want to play with some beautiful flowers for a few hours, we tailor our teaching style to each group. Our classes are small, informal, and suitable for all ability levels. We work with British flowers all year round, and specialise in eco-friendly and plastic/foam-free methods.
Most of our classes are hosted in our beautiful rustic barn studio which faces out onto the cutting patch. It's a perfect source of inspiration and offers a truly tranquil environment to get your creative juices flowing. Our central location means we're just 5 minutes from J12 of the M40 in the village of Gaydon so can be easily accessed from all directions.
Throughout the last year we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all government guidelines associated with it. From June 21st 2021 we will be delighted to welcome back group classes into our workshop space. Each booking will receive thorough terms and conditions explaining how we're keeping both staff and attendees safe during classes, as well as details explaining our extensive cancellation policy.
