Working around my events diary, I teach 1:1 and 1:2 workshops from my studio in West Berkshire, I also guest teach at host venues so email me if you would like me to come to you. Whether you're an established florist looking to brush up or perfect a particular technique or a simply flower enthusiast looking to try something new, I tailor classes to suit using whatever the season has to offer.
FESTIVE WREATH WORKSHOPS 2018
Honesty Cookery School will for the third year be the host venue for my Christmas wreath workshops. Classes begin with a demonstration where you’ll learn how to make your own luxurious door wreath, having taught wreath workshops for over 10 years, my philosophy is to encourage every attendee to create their own design whatever your style (no two wreaths are ever the same in my classes). Fresh ingredients, luxury ribbons along with the support and guidance of experienced florists sets us apart from the plethora of wreath workshops available. Once you have had the pleasure of making your own door wreath, you will probably never want to buy shop bought wreath ever again! Class length: Approx 2.5 hours.

"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
