Groups were too big which meant we didn’t have much individual feedback from the teacher. It was too technically focussed (not learning to be a florist just wanted to explore my creative side with flowers).

My daughter and I attended the Introductory Floral Course. Francesca provides a warm, welcoming space to explore the artistry and skills of floral arrangements. She is a generous, highly skilled and a supportive teacher with a great eye and a quick wit. Thank you Francesca.
