Flower Arranging Classes & Workshops in Sheffield
How would you like to learn how to make your own flower arrangements? I offer bespoke workshops as well as regular flower classes. Most classes take place in my shop and cafe, which has a cooler full of beautiful seasonal flowers to choose from.
I have been a florist for 30 years and have been teaching regularly since 2008, passing on my knowledge and techniques to those who wish to learn.
The regular flower class at my shop is on Wednesday evening 7pm–9pm on a pay as you go basis. Materials are not provided for this class, however there is always plenty available to buy, you could bring your own, or do a bit of both. Each week there is a different design to make and take home to impress your friends and family.
The WEA (Workers Educational Association) also run two classes which I teach, Wednesday afternoon at St John’s Church Hall, Totley 1pm–3pm, and at the MATREC centre on Prince of Wales Road on Fridays 9.15am-11.15am. For these classes, payment must be made up front for a block of 10 or 11 sessions, however there are concessions for anyone in receipt of benefits. All classes are for all levels of experience as a demonstration of each design is given every week. The classes are fun, relaxed and friendly.
