Working around my events diary, I teach 1:1 and 1:2 workshops from my studio in West Berkshire as well as a guest at host venues. 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 classes to suit using whatever the season has to offer.

A morning for budding flower enthusiasts. Feel in need of a a bit of direction on what and what not to pick from your own garden or allotment?

"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
