Eight years ago I had the privilege of being taught and inspired by Jane Packer, a journey which led to the birth of The Flower Fairies. She was an internationally renowned florist who inspired many already in the flower industry but also many to venture into the magical world of flowers.
I think this was a big part of her legacy, her floral gifts were generously shared which opened up doors of opportunities for flower lovers all over the world.
The Flower Fairies Flower School is our way of paying it forward and sharing with others the skills and magic of flowers. Whether you want to learn a few tips and enjoy a day of floral creativity or go another level and learn some professional skills and techniques there is a course for you!
We have a beautiful studio located just north west of Oxford that can accommodate up to fifteen people and with all of our courses all materials are included, we throw in a few yummy cakes too an essential ingredient to any florists day! We can also offer bespoke courses, for example Hen Parties or special occasions, if there is something you are interested in doing and don't see a course that fulfills this, do get in touch.

Why should we wait till Christmas to adorn our doors with beautiful wreaths? There is a growing love and desire for a wreath on our doors at other times of the year so now you can join us to create a beautiful Spring wreath. Using the same principles and techniques as our Christmas wreaths we will be making a wreath full of seasonal foliages, mosses, twigs, blossoms, bulbs and spring flowers. The beauty of this arrangement is that it would also make a stunning center piece for your Easter table by popping some pillar candles into the middle. All materials including a lovely selection of real flowers as well as refreshments are included.
