Nikki was really helpful and informative, teaching us some great basic floristry tips and tricks. And guiding us through the process of building a stunning centrepiece vase arrangement. I had lots of fun and walked away with some extra skills and a beautiful vase of flowers. Great if you’re looking to dip your toe into the world of floristry or just for fun!

Nikki was fantastic, I learnt so much from her on the centrepiece workshop. The materials she had were beautiful and so much variety, we were able to choose how much or little we wanted.

She was well prepared for the social distancing and the venue was great.

I would definitely recommend doing this workshop. I am so pleased with what I created.

We learnt about textures, colour values and having different flower heights. Nikki was knowledgeable, gentle and patient. She was happy to answer our questions while we arranged away over a cup of herbal tea and some classical music.

My mother and I had a fantastic time at this class. Nikki was very warm and welcoming. She gave great tips and advice and it was a beautiful day in the park. Many people came to have a look and comment. We were thrilled with our centrepieces and have come away with knowledge and enthusiasm to try it at home.
