During the cold, often depressing month of January, I decided to take action and begin my dream of running workshops for my own business.
My experience comes from teaching and organising a series of different workshops at the formidable Rebel Rebel, where I have worked for a number of years. Additionally I have worked with florists such as Jam Jar Flowers, Urban Flower Company, Augustus Bloom and McQueen’s. I have a passion for teaching and love sharing the joy of flowers with others.
When it came to starting my website I had lots of help from some great friends who understood what I was trying to achieve with my website.
My next step was to organise a Hand-tied Bouquet Workshop...
On a crisp but sunny January morning I arrived at Covent Garden Flower Market In London. I perused the endless beautiful seasonal flowers. I bought an array of flowers at Dennis Edward's; amazing Anemones, radiant Roses and flawless Freesia and all of the beautiful foliage at Porters. The market really is worth visiting with its industrial yet family feel, with many of the traders having been in the business for decades.
Having made it home with armfuls of blooms, I styled the room and placed the flowers in containers. Everyone arrived and we began! The Workshop went perfectly with everybody making stunning seasonal bouquets with perfect wrapping and spiralled stems!
Being on a massive high from how well the first workshop went, I began organising the next one which will be taking place at my favourite restaurant and bar, Pearl Hackney Wick,on the 5th March. The day before my 24th birthday!
