Workshop and Courses

Why choose Rose Cottage?

At Rose Cottage I can be the bridge between your desires and your unexploited potential for creative floristry. I offer workshops, courses, and classes for everyone. Whether you are a complete beginner or would like to become a professional florist Iwill support you in achieving your ambitions.

Learning how to arrange flowers is both an art and a skill. All skills can be developed with practice. As a professionally qualified teacher, I guide you through the workshop so your learning journey is easy, fun and informative. You will be amazed by how much you learn.

Bespoke personalised one to one tuition is also available by arrangement whether you want to develop your skills for own personal enjoyment or to become a professional florist If you would like to book a special workshop for a hen party, wedding or team building please contact me for availability.


Rose Cottage is located in the picturesque village of Harby in the Vale of Belvoir which is ideal for Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland and for those who travel from further afield. The working space for creative floristry is very important and here at Rose Cottage my “flower room” is light and airy and decorated in greys pinks and blues by Little Green, Farrow and Ball and Frenchic. People come to me from all over the world who want to learn creative floristry in a relaxed environment with expert tuition. I can also travel to other venues by arrangement.

Course materials and flowers

As a professional florist I only use the best available flowers on all of my courses. Everything you need on the day is provided for you and included in the cost of the workshop. There is the option to buy materials and sundries for you to take home and practice in your own time.

I guide you through every step of your learning experience so you create something that is unique to you rather than everyone creating the same design. You will be delighted to take home your arrangement to enjoy and show off your new skills.


All of my courses include home cooked and home baked food. so there is always something delicious for you to enjoy such as tea and cake, light lunch or full afternoon tea. I also cater for vegetarians, vegans or anyone with a food intolerance or allergy. Please let me know any special dietary requirements when you book.
