'Thoroughly enjoyed my day at the flower school, Judith and her staff were so welcoming. Our topics for the day were a table centrepiece and a handtied bunch of flowers. Judith was hands on and assisted every student individually - an excellent teacher and such a lovely lady.'

Thoroughly enjoyed my day at the flower school, Judith and her staff were so welcoming. Our topics for the day were a table centrepiece and a handtied bunch of flowers, Judith was totally hands on and assisted every student individually, an excellent teacher and such a lovely lady. The flowers used were beautiful and my creations remained intact despite my 3 hour journey home via tube and train.

I attended the One Day Taster with Judith in January 2016 and absolutely loved it! I was given the day as a birthday present by my boyfriend - he knew that I wanted to explore floristry as a (change of) career and this was the perfect course as an introduction. There were others who just wanted to spend a day learning about and enjoying flowers and I think it served both purposes very well. We learnt a table arrangement and a tie bouquet, both were fantastic fun and beautiful. Judith was wonderful, encouraging and ever so happy to answer questions - I'm really pleased I got to spend a day learning from her years of experience. If you're looking for a course that will give you a solid introduction, a wonderful day out and a memory to treasure, then this is definitely it. In my book it was certainly worth the money (think what the flowers must cost). And the flowers themselves? Absolutely stunning!

Judith is an excellent teacher! She taught me some years ago and I still remember all her advice and easy to follow methods.. She makes flower arranging achievable, understandable and most of all fun. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering a course.

Judith is an absolutely wonderful teacher and I would highly recommend her courses. She teaches in a really clear way, always on hand to help and full of useful information. There wasn't anything we asked that she couldn't answer! The location of the school is to die for, and the flowers we used were top quality. I came away feeling confident that I could arrange flowers at home after only one day.
