£170  (group booking for up to 6 people)

This a fun filled, flower-packed 2 hours learning to make your very own fresh flower crown. Very popular for hen weekends and parties etc. The maximum capacity in our workshop is 6 clients but we are always very happy to travel to you (travel costs may apply) and invite as many friends as you like at an extra £15 p/p.

These classes really are a lovely way to spend a couple of hours with your favourite people making something gorgeous (usually with a lot of laughter and a little prosecco….!)


At our studio in Scotland 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!

We are located around 10 miles from Helensburgh, about a 45 minute drive from Glasgow. If you are travelling by train we are happy to collect you from Helensburgh or Garelochhead station. We are also available for one on one classes and home classes. Please check with us regarding additional costs. Classes make a lovely unique gift and we have gift vouchers available. So what are you waiting for……

Hand-tied bouquets £140
The basis of many contemporary arrangements and a must learn technique. The basis for many bridal bouquets, for gift bouquets and vase arrangements. We’ll teach you how to master the knack of creating a spiral shape with those stems! You’ll create two very different bouquets and you’ll also professionally wrap them to take home.
Bridal £135
A great introduction to wedding flowers. We’ll show you how to create a beautiful hand tied bridal bouquet along with a complimentary buttonhole, pin corsage, flowergirl basket and flower crown.
We don’t use floral foam at Vanilla Rose – full of nasties! We’ll show you a much better way to arrange your flowers in a completely eco friendly way. We’ll be making two very different table arrangements. One, a dome shaped arrangement on a vase, and also a flower wreath to place around a candle centrepiece.
Sympathy tributes £175
We’ll make a beautiful wreath and a large natural style arrangement for the top of a casket, both essential sympathy tributes to master.
Ceremony flowers £185
All the basics for decorating a wedding ceremony: pew ends, pedestal/ large urn arrangement and a long and low arrangement.
Just wanted to let you know that my son got married and I did all the flowers and they were  really pleased with them and they looked great in the pictures. Thank you for all your tips. I really enjoyed the course.
I wanted to say a big thank you for such an inspiring lesson yesterday. Mum and I really enjoyed learning with you and you were so generous with your time and advice. Thanks for such a fun afternoon.
I contacted Vanilla Rose to enquire about training and asked for a package that was not on the course list. Rachael came back to me and put together a day’s session with the classes I required. I had a very eventful day and completed my training. What was wonderful for me, was being able to make a “Dad” tribute for my best friends’ dad’s funeral. During the training I learnt loads of tips and put together flowers that I would never have done before. I would like to thank you for the one to-one training you gave me. It was more personal and a pleasure to do the training. It made my day and I know it helped me to fulfil my request to help my friend at a sad time.
