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.
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!
All flowers, foliage, materials and equipment are supplied, including the vases and containers you may need for your design.
We also offer bespoke workshops for groups looking for a unique and private celebration such as a baby shower, hen party or birthday. They are an equally popular choice for corporate entertainment and hospitality showcases too. We can tailor our workshop format to create a bespoke floral experience you'll never forget. We have also created a beautiful range of DIY Wreath Kits available to buy online. These kits are perfect for organising a virtual workshop, if you are unable to gather everyone together at the same time and place.
