Description

Create a beautiful flower arrangement with locally grown Welsh flowers. Learn how to arrange flowers and develop your own floristry style.

We will discuss the best options for flower arranging during the seasons as well as learning how to prepare and condition your flowers.
Once you have created your masterpiece, we will take some time to photograph your flowers with the option of different backdrops and styling.

ABOUT Kirsten
Hello
I’m Kirsten and I founded Queen of the Meadow Flowers after retraining as a florist at the Tallulah Rose Flower School. I wanted to offer an alternative to the traditional flowers sold on the high street and showcase British and seasonal flowers in bespoke arrangements.

I am based in rural Neath, South Wales, working from my studio on a farm. I offer beautiful floral designs for all occasions, working with any budget.

I take my inspiration from my surroundings and look to the past for influence. I create natural, winsome, and romantic flowers using only the finest blooms from British growers, my own cutting garden and flower markets.

I work with local growers, as well as using some of my own home-grown flowers, to ensure that the freshest blooms and most organic forms are used. Working with British growers where possible in my work ensures that less air miles are used, it supports the British growing industry and uses flowers that have not been subjected to pesticides. I like to use traditional methods of flower arranging rather than using floral foam and plastics. I do not use cellophane in my work, replacing this with re-useable and recyclable materials instead.

“We really wanted British flowers, so we went with the hugely talented florist Queen of the Meadow Flowers. She understood I wanted to contribute and included flowers and foliage from my garden in her designs. She gave lots of advice and provided a wonderful service and wonderful flowers.”
