The Flower Lounge has created a series of seasonal and creative workshops for all budding florists and flower enthusiasts. Whether you’re looking for a creative outlet, a chance to hone your floristry skills or a gift experience for someone you love, our workshops are designed to share our expertise, so you can create your own stunning floral designs, using seasonal blooms and gorgeous foliage...
Run by award-winning florist, Siân Wild and top floral designer Mark Entwistle, each two-hour workshop starts with a demonstration on how to choose, prepare, wire and arrange your flowers into a beautiful bespoke arrangement. With an assortment of fabulous flowers to choose from, you will then embark on your own creation with Siân and Mark on hand with plenty of one-to- one guidance.
Our workshops are held in our beautifully designed workshop space within our shop in Didsbury and are limited to only 8 people; for a truly personalised experience. Each workshop is designed with novices in mind, but there’s always plenty to learn whatever your skill level - all you need is enthusiasm and willingness to give it a go!
The workshop includes refreshments with delicious cakes supplied by the very talented Cakes by Yolk.
All flowers, foliage, materials and equipment are supplied, including the vases and containers you need may for your design, which of course you can take home and have everyone admire.
Guests are advised to dress comfortably and arrive 15 mins early to get acquainted and put on their aprons!
Gift vouchers are available. We also offer bespoke workshops for groups (of up to 8 people) which can be tailored to your specific requirements, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
