What a wonderful way to spend a morning. Gem the instructor was brilliant, we learnt so much in a short space of time. She is warm, friendly and clearly an exceptional florist. Highly recommend this class and we will definitely be booking in for others.

The Beginners guide to Floristry will certainly help me in my flower arranging, our teacher was excellent and made the afternoon fun, I'm available for more of these short classes and not only because of the Verve champagne and nibbles!!
