Taking inspiration from To Autumn by John Keats, this studio workshop will focus on creating exquisite bridal bouquets in our loose, romantic style. We will encapsulate the bountiful fruitfulness of this smoky season using the finest British flowers and foliage; flaming leaves and grasses, leggy dahlias, crabapples and berries, Japanese anemones, speckled hydrangea and the last of the summer roses.

In our first group class of the year, students will learn how to make a beautiful spring bridal bouquet and small centrepiece arrangement using a variety of tulips and seasonal materials: anemones, ranunculus, scented herbs, blossoming branches and early spring foliage.

We will demonstrate how to create a bouquet in our signature style, focusing on blending colours, adding gestural flowers and creating a loose, natural shape finished with streaming silk ribbons. For the centrepiece design we will show how tulips can be used as a sculptural focal flower and enhanced by complementary tones and textures, to create a low arrangement spilling with spring flowers.

Students will leave with the knowledge of basic floral techniques for building a bouquet and arrangement, how to think about colour, scent and texture, and helpful tips on how to use a range of garden-grown materials to evoke the essence of a season.
