Please note: I am fully booked for my private workshops until late October 2019 but am booking into 2020.
MADE TO MEASURE 1:1’s For Florists
I’ve been running my small event florist business since 2002, that’s 17 years of hands on, real life work experience to draw upon. Workshops are fitted around my busy wedding & events diary that continues to be the mainstay of my business. Whether you're an established florist looking to brush up or perfect a particular skill, at the start of your career looking to focus on a particular technique, or simply in need of a mentor for some practical business advice, I tailor each class to suit.
I am lucky enough to have welcomed florists from all over the world to spend time with me, occasionally put their experience into practise by being my intern and working alongside me.
Full Day: £498 (£550 *from Jan 2020)
The day can have several parts such as learning how to wire a bouquet, making my signature bridal bouquets, wreath making, garlanding, funeral tributes or how to build your own business. Attendees can also book multiple days and stay locally. As well as the day, I always offer on-going support and advice so you will always have someone to call should you have any queries.
Includes flowers, equipment, refreshments and lunch.
LARGE INSTALLATION WORKSHOP £600
Full day: Learn the mechanics of making a large show stopping floral structure such as a floral arch, a runner, table scape or other large structures
"HOW TO DO THE FLOWERS" (non professionals only).
1:1 or 1:2 ( & bring a friend)
Suitable for those new to flower arranging but want to know how to do their own flowers rather than pursue a career. Come away feeling more confident with a greater appreciation and understanding of the fine art of flower arranging. Learn how to arrange in your own vases, urns, make hand tied hostess bouquets, gift wrapping or maybe even learn how to make a seasonal wreath - what ever you want.
£180 pp (Half Day) Includes all flowers, foliage and equipment as well as light refreshments
DIY WEDDING FLOWERS (full day)
How to do your own wedding flowers. A perfect day for mothers and daughters planning a wedding.
A workshop designed to help you realistically prepare to arrange your own wedding flowers. I will guide you through flowers available at the time of your wedding, help you plan stem counts, suggest flowers and colours which will create the look you want to achieve. Practically, I will show you how to arrange and tie simple bouquets, make buttonholes, create simple centre pieces and guide you through what you’ll need to know to prepare your own wedding flowers with as little stress as possible!
£600 for 2/3 attendees
Festive Wreath Workshops 2019
In 2019 all TWHFCo. wreath workshops will be using moss bases in a continuing effort to reduce the use of floral foam in my work.
Make your own door wreath using fresh and dried seasonal foliage. Wreath making has become very popular over the past decade, I have been teaching wreath workshops for over fifteen years and these workshops are always popular. Wreaths made with me are always individual, luxurious as I only source quality ingredients, they will last through to the New Year if hung outdoors.

"Thank you SO much Linz for an amazing 2 day course. I have fallen in love with wreaths! You are an inspirational lady and I'm so glad that I learned from you. I am ready for the next step to open my flower shop. You're style, eye for detail, and enthusiasm is so encouraging. Thank you! Highly recommended" Claire A - August 2017
" I just wanted to send you an email to say a huge thank you for the wonderful wiring workshop yesterday. It was an amazing day, I loved every minute, the gorgeous flowers, your welcoming and down to earth personality, delicious food and spending the day in the company with other lovely talented florists. Please pass on my thanks to Liz, Megan and Eve for their help and support wiring and endless cups of coffee. A wonderful inspiring tutorial and I look forward to hopefully booking some wired Wedding bouquets this year as my little business grows. Thanks for the spare flowers I will continue to practice with those this week. Kind regards,JP" March 2018
