Hello! I’m Susan Martorano, Floral Consultant
I live in the village of Harby right in the middle of the Vale of Belvoir and my flower studio is in my home, so an easy one minute commute to work for me! I have always loved the beauty of flowers and get as much pleasure from assembling a simple vase of seasonal flowers for the kitchen table as I do from creating an elaborate design for a wedding.
I enjoy floral design and sharing my knowledge with others and welcoming people to my light and airy studio .All my workshops are relaxed, informal and informative. People get hooked and come back time and time again to learn different skills. Your can read more about Rose Cottage Flower School here
My favourite flowers are Peonies, and the beautiful scented O’Hara roses. My floral style is more towards the vintage, open, rustic, style with elements of chic! though I just love working with flowers whatever style or flower combination or colour.
My other passion is baking, so homemade cake is always available on workshops and I have been told, I make quite a good scone too !
Rose Cottage is the name of my home and you can read more about the happenings here on my blog. I hope you will have a wander around my website as there are quite a few places to stop and have a browse. All workshops include flowers and you take home your lovely floral creation..
