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 and a glass of fizz. All flowers, foliage, materials and equipment are supplied, including the vases and containers you may need for your design and luxurious, hand-dyed velvet ribbon from Silk & Purl.
Gift vouchers are available. We also offer bespoke workshops for groups (of up to 8 people) which can be tailored to your specific requirements, ideal for unique and private celebrations such as a baby showers, hen parties or birthdays.
For larger groups, we can come to you! A popular choice for corporate entertainment and hospitality showcases, we can tailor our workshop format to create a bespoke floral experience that really sets your event apart.

Your creation, and the vase it comes in, will then be yours to take away, brightening your home and wowing your friends and family.
