I attended this course with my daughter. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Annabelle's organisation was brilliant. Each person had their own preprepared pack of stencils and materials ready to go. Annabelle not only showed us how to make several flowers in slow and easy steps, but also allowed us time to be creative on our own with our newly acquired skills! I would definitely recommend her course and attend again.

Hi Denise
Thank you so much for your comments, it’s very encouraging that everyone has enjoyed their day being creative.
My reason for including written instructions and stencils ready to go is because I want everyone to be able to get as much out of the workshop as possible.
I am always amazed of the amount of flowers everyone produces in the day and they are all so different with the different materials I provide.

I really enjoyed attending Annabelle's course; she was extremely organised and made it a very friendly non-threatening atmosphere. As someone who is not very creative at all, I was amazed at what she got out of me! I would definitely recommend one of her courses.

Hi Sharon

I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop.
I like to limit numbers on my workshops to enable me to help participants as much as possible.
The flowers you produced were amazing, you clearly have a talent for flower making!

What a fantastic course. Annabelle was so welcoming & nothing too much trouble! All materials were ready for us & step by step instructions that we needed.
Can't wait to do another course.
Thanks again for such a great day

Hi Cheryl

I am so pleased you enjoyed the course.

I am gradually adding more flowers now, so I may be introducing mini workshops next year for a new flower range for anyone who would enjoy another session trying something new.

Highly recommend this course. You get to learn a lot in a day and come away with your creations. Annabelle is very helpful and demonstrates well. She has good resources which you can help yourself to without limit, allowing you to experiment with your flowers. It was well prepared and we all had a small pack with templates and instructions. I came away knowing I had learnt enough to give it a try on my own but knew I could contact Annabelle with any questions. There was also an opportunity to buy a starter pack from Annabelle which meant you could go home and start straight away. The course was fun and informative. Thank you for a great day. PS. Thank you also for the biscuits and tea and coffee 😊

Hi Christine

It is reassuring to know that from what I had demonstrated with you and from the written instructions I had provided you felt you had the confidence to make flowers on your own.

Feel free to contact me if you get stuck or need any help with your creations.

Had a really great day learning how to make flowers for my wedding! Annabelle was a great teacher and very helpful! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to create any design of flower!

Thank you so much for your review, it was lovely to be able to help you create flowers in your chosen colour scheme.
I hope all goes well with your forth coming wedding and would love to see your flowers.

Had an excellent day learning how to make flowers out of hessian. Great teacher and a fun class. No question too silly to ask! She had time for us all. Would recommend to go and have a great time and come home with some nice flowers.

Hi Beverley

It was lovely meeting you and what a fun day we had, so much laughter but you all made a lovely assortment of flowers to take home.

It was a lovely size group to work with and participants feel more relaxed in smaller groups.

Thank you so much for your review.

Best wishes


Fantastic day out, well organised and plenty of skills learnt and materials to choose from.
Extremely friendly and knowledgeable host who was able to cater to our every need effortlessly.
Value for money and a highly recommended course to go on 🤗

It’s also good to know that you felt it was value for money.

I look forward to seeing you again in December for the wreath and table decoration workshop.

A relaxing day learning new skills. No pressure approach so plenty of time to work at your own speed and create your favourite pieces taught during the day.

The best craft course I have attended. Everything was well prepared, with clear instructions to take home afterwards so you could carry on creating. Annabelle was very patient and encouraging. Thank you Annabelle for a very enjoyable day.

Hi Lyndsey

Thank you so much for your review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your day creating flowers.
It’s good to hear that you find the instructions easy to follow to enable you to carry on creating in your own time.
I like participants to spend their day with me creating and not having to make loads of notes, I feel it wastes time and concentration.

Best wishes


A fabulous course for all levels of ability - Annabelle made us all feel most welcome and taught us a variety of skills in making a range of rustic hessian flowers in the morning session. Her gentle encouragement gave us all the confidence to develop and explore these skills in the afternoon, so we all left with a beautiful bouquet at the end of the day and lots of inspiration to continue making flowers in the future - Thank you Annabelle!
