Autumn Bouquet Workshop with The Garden Gate Flower Company

Autumn Bouquet Workshop with The Garden Gate Flower Company


Tuesday 10th September 9.00 - 2.30

We're absolutely thrilled that the wonderful Becca Stuart from The Garden Gate Flower Company has agreed to collaborate with us on this very special bridal bouquet workshop. Becca is one of the top designers of the new British flower movement and has taught her relaxed, intuitive style of floristry at, among other places, Sarah Raven's Perch Hill studio.

Using exclusively homegrown and British flowers, Becca’s workshops focus on colour and texture, banishing the excessive use of a technique, rather embracing the season and the individual flowers. If you are yet to discover her fabulous work, I recommend taking a moment to scroll through her dreamy Instagram feed.

Whether you're a professional florist looking to develop your skills or a home florist keen  to use flowers in a natural, unstructured way, I can’t recommend this workshop enough.

Please see below for full details of the course.

The Workshop

Using flowers picked from the JW Blooms flower field, Becca will demonstrate how she creates her signature-style bridal bouquets, sharing her experience of choosing colour and texture to create designs which break the mould of the traditional spiralled bouquet. She will also show you how to apply the same techniques to designing container arrangements without floral foam.

Then it's your turn! With Becca's guidance and advice, you will create your own beautiful  bouquet to take home with you.

The day finishes with professional photographer John Hersey from Holes In The World Studio, who will capture your bouquet for posterity and your portfolio.

The emphasis will be on exploration - getting to know and working with naturally-grown flowers rather than the often stiff-stemmed, identical blooms found at the wholesaler. Questions are encouraged and Becca is also happy to discuss questions you may have about creating a sustainable business and growing your business through visual marketing. After you've created your bouquets, you are welcome to stay and explore the JW BLOOMS flower field, where. Jan will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about what she grows and the flowers you’ve been using.
