Creative Flower School based in a leafy, sylvan setting in Ferndown, Dorset. Angela is an experienced professionally qualified florist, having worked in both retail floristry and education. With many years of practical experience as well as over 30 years teaching floristry, floral design and flower arranging, Angela has been awarded several RHS Chelsea Gold Medals for Floristry & Floral Design as well as many other awards including most recently ‘1 of 100 Faces of Floristry’. The ground floor Studio has very easy access, is well equipped, spacious, light and airy with good table space for up to 8 participants. Angela likes to work with seasonal materials and uses British locally grown flowers where possible. She’s also keen to use sustainable methods with the School being foam-free. Angela is also available at the Studio for private parties so you can choose what you’d like to do and when you’d like to do it! A minimum of 6 people are required for this. Alternatively she can travel to your chosen venue. When you visit you’ll be greeted with coffee, biscuits and homemade cake and the tunes playing; you’ll find a relaxed learning environment and meet other likeminded creative folk to chat to, flower with, share a cuppa with and there’ll be all sorts of stories, tips, hints and general loveliness abound! Never happier than when sharing her love for all things natural, Angela would be delighted to welcome you to the Botanical Classroom.
