I'm so excited to be joining Nikki Hemstock in her amazing new venture Flock at Parke Interiors. We're kicking off with an incredible day of Christmassy floral creativity with the Wreath and Contemporary Gift Wrapping Workshop in Bovey Tracey on the 17th December.
Using a woven willow base and seasonal plants gathered from the garden, you will learn how to use and shape foliage and dried flowers, and employ wiring and decorative techniques to create a statement piece.
In the afternoon, we will be helping you to take your Christmas gift-giving to a whole new level. We will guide you through the art of contemporary present wrapping, using a combination of natural papers, foliage and hand-finished embellishments.

Book onto the Christmas workshops here
More information about Radley Cross is available on their website.
If you would like to learn something specific, would like to come with a group of friends or would prefer one on one tuition then why not book a private session. Previous private tuition sessions have included Christmas wreaths, DIY weddings and creating pedestal arrangements but can be arranged for anything you like.
The Hand-tied bouquet workshop is especially popular - a forage for foliage, learn to make a classic hand-tied and then how to display as a centrepiece, present as a bridal bouquet and wrap for giving as a gift. Tea, cake and beautiful photos are all included!
Prices depend on subject matter and depth and will be confirmed in advance.
Crafty hen parties are becoming increasingly popular and we offer really easy and fun floral workshops for groups of any size. Flower crowns, make your own bouquet and seasonal designs are all in demand. Prices depend on design and number of people and workshops can happen all over the South West. Please contact me for booking info!
