Floral & Gardening School

The school runs seasonal floral and simple gardening courses  and our aim is to share the design philosophy and skills of R&R. We offer practical half and one day workshops during the week and at weekends for students who would like to understand new trends and ideas. Evening classes are available from time to time for those not able to join us in the daytime. We also run pop up  “Studio Classes ” and demonstrations at The Country Homes & Interiors show, The Wellchild Christmas Fair at Daylesford Organics  and other events where you can come along  and see both Floral and Gardening demonstrations. Details of these shows are available on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

There’s something to suit everyone at the school – from the absolute beginner taking their first steps through to the experience florist looking to update their style.  We enjoy working with our students to guide them step-by-step and to watch them delight in understanding just what can be achieved – with the right technique and knowledge.

Our classes are generally small groups of around 6 to 8, however we can accommodate larger groups if required. We are also often asked to create bespoke classes (brides and their girlfriends love being with us!) and private lessons which we also love to do.

Gift Vouchers are available if you would like to buy someone a special gift they will adore.
