The most gorgeous way to spend a morning. Khin is so knowledgeable and talented and so generous. Will be booking again in the early autumn!

I came along to Khin's workshop with two close friends. We had a brilliant time! Khin talked us through Columbia Road Flower Market, he was always ready to answer questions and was so charming, friendly and knowledgable. We then went back to his studio where he had a fabulous choice of flowers for us to create a seasonal hand tied bouquet. He showed us step by step what to do and we all went home with a stunning bouquet having had plenty of support from Khin and his team to create it. He also recommend a great local coffee shop and a fantastic local Vietnamese restaurant. We had such a great time, it was so much fun and the pace was just perfect. Relaxed but we also learnt some great tips and techniques. Still smiling the next day! Thank you Khin!

Your Teacher

The Flower Factory is a unique, seasonally inspired flower studio and floristry school based in Shoreditch. They are a highly creative team of London florists with a passion for botanical beauty and an excellent eye for detail.

Inspired by the change in seasons they aim to keep things simple, natural and a little bit unexpected.

Floristry workshops are held in their studio where you have the full attention of the teacher and will leave with as much technical know-how as you would like. Larger groups or corporate workshops can also be arranged at your premises or a local space…

A well organised and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday morning and go home with a beautiful bunch of flowers!
Helen Charlwood - 28 February 2023
A fabulous morning spent wandering the Columbia Rd Flower Market and learning how to arrange a hand-tied bouquet. Well looked after by Khin and our guide and tutor, Ottilie (not sure if I've spelt that right!) and their assistants. So knowledgeable and encouraging, providing a beautiful selection of flowers - even I, with very little creative flair, was able to create a wonderful bouquet! Thank you all for the experience.

What a lovely morning spent strolling through Columbia Road flower market followed by an informative and fun session making beautiful seasonal bouquets! My mum and I really enjoyed it, thank you!

Excellent workshop

I really enjoyed my tour of Columbia Road flower market and the workshop afterwards. Khin is a brilliant guide and teacher and made everyone on the tour feel really welcomed. He had amazing knowledge and picked the most stunning blooms for us to create our floral display.

This workshop went beyond my expectations! Khin is very friendly, attentive and knowledgable - you can tell he is very passionate about his craft and goes out his way to tailor the experience to what you want out of it! I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the workshops - the guided walking tour, learning the craft of flower arranging and having a go ourselves, chatting with Khin and of course bringing home a beautiful bouquet you designed each to take home. I came into the workshop with very little knowledge and this experience has definitely inspired me to add more florals to my home (or even creating my own to gift!). I thoroughly recommend this workshop - it will not dissapoint!

Fantastic experience. Khin is a lovely host with a lovely workshop, and is very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed all he had to teach us during the market tour, and had great fun trying our own hand in the workshop with expert instruction. Would highly recommend!
