Many years working as an event florist, I've gathered a wealth of experience, skills and tips which I'd love to share. Some classes are incredibly popular, one or twice they've even been mentioned in The Daily Telegraph, more recently The Sunday Times.
Working around my wedding and events diary, I teach mostly 1:1 and 1:2 workshops from my studio in West Berkshire. Whether you're already a florist looking to brush up or perfect a particular technique, or simply looking to learn the basics of floristry, I tailor the class to suit using whatever the season has to offer for the time of year.
"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
