At Vanilla Rose we offer a range of flexible and affordable floristry modules to allow you to pick and choose your bespoke learning experience. Whether you’re a complete beginner who doesn’t know one end of a gerbera from the other, a keen amateur looking for a little practical experience from the professionals, or planning to create gorgeous flower designs for a wedding or event, our modules cover the all basics of contemporary floristry.
If there is something special you would like to learn, let us know and we’ll try and oblige!
Classes include flowers and materials and you keep all your lovely creations with any vases/ containers available for purchase at cost price. We will give you advice on how best to condition and care for different types of flowers, plus a few insider tips for perfect petals! We recommend you bring a notebook and are happy for you to take photos throughout. Classes take place in our cosy purpose built workshop and run from 10am – 4.30pm with a short break for lunch (provided) and a couple of cups of tea!
There is a maximum of four students per class so you are guaranteed plenty of help and support throughout the day. Booking multiple modules entitles you to a 10% discount on each and if you book with a friend we might even offer you a little extra discount – we’re nice like that!
