About this course

This practical 3 hour course will introduce you to the art of arranging flowers. It’s a great starting point if you’re an absolute beginner – or are looking to gain some flower arranging confidence, and develop your skills.

You’ll need to bring your own scissors or secateurs, flowers, greenery and mechanics (that’s flower foam, containers and so on - some of these will be available to buy from the tutor, by prior arrangement).

By the end of this course you’ll be able to:

- condition your flowers and greenery
- create a gift arrangement using a spiralling technique
- demonstrate an awareness of contemporary flower arranging design

This course will be taught by Julie Davies flower workshops – Julie is an awarding winning florist – BFA Florist Tutor of the year 2016

How will I be taught?

This will be by demonstration and then working on your own under the guidance of the tutor. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.

What do I need to bring with me?

Students should budget £10-15 for flowers. Buying flowers from the supermarket and supplementing these with greenery from your garden is a cost-effective way of providing the necessary course materials.

Mechanics will be available to purchase from the tutor, by prior arrangement – raffia to tie, tissue paper/cellophane to wrap

Please bring with you:-

Flowers, greenery and mechanics
Notebook and pen (optional)
Camera (optional)

We’ll be creating a handtied bouquet (gift wrapped).


You’ll need a selection of your favourite flowers. Bring a mixed bunch from the supermarket, or two. A mix of carnations, roses, and chrysanthemums would be great flowers to work with.


You’ll need a selection of greenery – from your garden or your florist. Bring long lengths - varieties like pittosporum and eucalyptus. Large leaves (fatsia or aspidistra) - optional


Raffia or sting to tie
Cellophane - two sheets
Tissue paper – two sheets

*These items will be available to buy in class (by prior arrangement) at £2.50 per person
