13 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.

Join us to learn how to arrange a selection of spring blooms and foliage into a hand-tied bouquet. Using a spiralling technique you will learn how to hold and arrange the materials into a beautiful dome of flowers, which you can then wrap from a choice of tissue, paper and cellophane. This is a basic floristry technique that can be used to arrange flowers in vases at home or for presenting flowers as gifts to others, it can also be used as the foundation upon which to learn how to create bridal bouquets. All materials are included as well as refreshments including cake of course!
If you can't get to a Christmas wreath workshop but would like to make your own in the comfort of your own home this kit is the perfect solution. Each kit contains all the materials you will need to make your own beautiful wreath, including a video tutorial and a printed step by step guide. The only thing that isn't included is scissors, so you will need to provide these (ideally sharp floristry scissors or secateurs) and perhaps a glass or two of mulled wine to get you into the festive spirit!. You will have the choice of some accessories to customise it to your own colour scheme such as whole limes or oranges and ribbon colour. The kits can then be collected from our studio in Long Hanborough, Oxfordshire or posted throughout the UK.
The kits will be ready to be dispatched w/c 30th Nov and 7th Dec, you decide which week you would prefer.
