The weather outside may be frightful but inside the Great British Florist Flower School
it is indeed delightful! You may have seen our Christmas workshops popping up here and there and as we draw in to the week before Christmas we felt we just had to tell you how they have been going!
The support for our Flower School has been incredible - We've had 82 people attend one of our Festive Flower Workshops!
There have been choirs singing Christmas carols and making wreaths, a new born baby snuggled up surrounded by flowers, Kissing balls being thrown around the workshop and so much laughter - it really has been a fantastic and festive time here at The Great British Florist.
We have had so much fun putting these workshops on for everyone, many which have been sold out - even dates that were added due to extra demand, and we cannily say thank you to everyone who attended and showed interest - it’s been amazing!
Our Flower School
within the Robert Owen Academy
has served it’s purpose well and has adapted amazingly from going from large shop with a little workshop to a flower school with a little shop and we have had many a happy time there with workshops, bespoke flower parties and much more, however the one thing we have seen is peoples hunger to know more about our farm, and who want to meet more of the florists who put together the fantastic arrangements that we send; this twinned with our own work here at Lower Blakemere
(cutting patch included!) means that we have some exciting news on the horizon for you - watch this space!
From all of us here at GBF - Merry Christmas and A massive thank you to the tutors Kerry, Gill and Kat, and all the team involved!
We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
