Daytime

Lesson: Table arrangements in hand made ceramic bowls and tablescape styling & feminine bouquets with cascading silk ribbons.

Theme: Rocaille - An Antoinette inspired class This day class is inspired by Rococo, a feminine and decorative style. Beginning in France in the 18th century, it's pale pastel colours, opulent gilding, asymmetry and scrolling curves, are suited perfectly to the delicate colour palette and ruffly textured English garden in early summer.

We'll have antique vases filled with garden roses, blowsy peonies, frilly ranunculus, dancing foxgloves, wisps of clematis, deliciously fragrant sweetpeas and floaty meadow grasses which we'll pair with lots of hand-dyed silk ribbons, ornate props, early summer fruits, pastel tapered candles and decorative beach shells.

Refreshments, a delicious seasonal lunch and afternoon tea included

About your host, Poppy Sturley Flower School

Run by Poppy Sturley, a floral designer and stylist. She is inspired by the seasons and seeing how things grow and change throughout the year. Each seasonal shift encourages her to focus on the different tones, textures and shapes it brings.

Over the years, Poppy has developed a romantic style. She creates naturally loose shapes that are light and delicate. Floaty bouquets of streaming silk ribbons, wispy arrangements designed with fruits like old oil paintings and ethereal installations sprawling through rooms are some of her favourites to make. Poppy has developed and refined her process and adapted various foam-free techniques that she shares in every class, as well as her knowledge of flowers, her design process and styling background.

This newly launched flower school offers a range of different classes. Their classes are for everyone and they encourage all abilities, whether you're just beginning your career in floristry, you'd like to develop a new skill or you'd just love a day immersed in flowers, the range of different people and backgrounds means their classes are always the most creative of places.

With an array of beautiful seasonal flowers and foraged foliage, stunning vessels and antique ceramics and a room brimming full of ideas, Poppy loves seeing what the outcomes are. Everyone creates something different, develops their personal style or learns new techniques and always leaves with armfuls of flowers. ​ Poppy Sturley Flower School is held in two stunning locations. Their London classes are held at the beautiful old Georgian Bell House in Dulwich, London and their country classes are held at their studio in West Kington Wick, a little Cotswold village just outside of Bath and very close to the charming village of Castle Combe.
