The British Flower School

Opening this summer in The Old Stables at the beautiful Mapperton House and Gardens, The British Flower School will run courses which encourage participants to look at flowers with fresh eyes. Dates will be announced in the next few weeks.

The Flower School will provide courses for flower arrangers and trainee or retraining florists wanting to create beautiful natural arrangements for every occasion, and for gardeners wanting to pick flowers all year round from their own gardens. There will also be days on plant drawing, and occasional lectures. Every day starts by taking your eyes for a walk and looking at the shapes, textures and combinations that nature provides. All flowers used in the courses are British grown, and we also use wild materials.

We are incredibly fortunate to have been invited by the Earl and Countess of Sandwich to hold the Flower School at Mapperton which boasts one of the most beautiful gardens in Britain. Course participants gain free entry to the gardens and a meal in the fine cafe in the grounds.

Much more information will follow on the British Flower School website which is currently under construction.
