From start to finish I loved every moment of this class! Hayley is such a warm and welcoming person and very good at explaining all the steps and making it a fun and engaging experience, even while doing the class over zoom which I think is amazing! Hayley even went out of her way when my package didn't arrive on time from the delivery service to personally drop it off to my house a new kit just so I could join the class and to ensure I wouldn't miss out which was beyond kind! All the materials were beautiful and had plenty to choose from and extra bits leftover and my wreath looked stunning! Originally we were meant to do the class in person but due to Covid it was moved to online which I was originally apprehensive about, however within minutes of starting the class any of those thoughts were left behind and I truly had a good time doing this. Highly recommended, you didn't need to be super creative or skilled to do this but if you are you would also enjoy this class because it works well for all levels and you create the wreath you want which is personal and lovely. Super glad I did this and absolutely highly recommend!

The excitement of the wreath making started when the materials arrived by courier. The box included a lovely selection of fresh pine branches, cones, moss, orange slices and everything else that you needed to make a festive wreath. Hayley is very friendly and explained and demonstrated everything perfectly. There is even a close up camera so it is just as good as attending in person. I felt we could go at our own pace and we were free to ask questions throughout. Hayley was happy to show us anything again in case we didn't quite get it the first time round. A fun evening and it was great to learn something new.

I delighted with the very generous contents of the wreath making kit. Lots of wonderful goodies to ensure that my wreath was individualised to my taste (I had enough left over to make a table centre display!!). Hayley was really good at teaching and stylish and make the whole experience great fun. Will definitely do other classes with Hayley.

Thoroughly enjoyed it! Totally meditative activity which is much needed at the moment. Lovely to be doing an activity with others - even this way - no masks! - and a good way to still have some interaction with others. Thank you Hayley! X

This class was terrific! It was originally scheduled to be held in person, and Hayley was very proactive in sorting out any issues with the switch to a Zoom class. Hayley was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor, easily building rapport through the screen across the group. All the components were sent a few days in advance. They were well-wrapped, and very generous amounts were provided. The class was fun, going at a good pace, with lots of 1-2-1 support provided. Our wreaths came out beautifully - they look professional-standard! It’s a week later, and my wreath still looks terrific and the scent of pine is wonderfully festive! I highly recommend this class and Hayley, and am looking for the next one to attend!

Laura - December 4th
Hayley’s class was such a fantastic experience! She is a great teacher, the class was really relaxed, fun and easy to follow - and the results were really professional! The kit (a huge box of goodies and everything you need) was such a treat to open and use. What a gorgeous advent afternoon!
review
Pamela - December 4th
Hayley at Floral Merchant made it a friendly session while guiding us through how to make our own Christmas wreath, step by step and at a sensible pace for the class. Everything we needed to make them was sent out in advance - the only tool we needed to self supply was a pair of scissors. The smell of pine needles as we made them was wonderful and my finished wreath has been much admired already. Hayley was very responsive to pre-class questions (Covid had meant this had to be rearranged from in person to online). Thoroughly recommend!
review
Debra - December 2nd
Loved it. Great tutor and the class worked really well online. The box of goodies was delivered in good time before the course, but not too early. All the contents were beautifully presented and there was some left over for another small project. I would not hesitate to do another course with Hayley. A lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Sarah - December 2nd
It was fabulous! It felt like the same experience we would have had, had it been face to face - no question was too small. The quality of items we were sent was wonderful too - we had more than we needed!
review
Frances - December 2nd
Hayley was absolutely brilliant, managing a slight postal hiccup ahead of class with ease, right through to the virtual class itself. The wreath kits are such good quality, with plenty of bits to choose from, you can’t really go wrong. Hayley showed us all the techniques and provided tips as we went along. I couldn’t recommend this class enough.

Faye Willis - November 30th
I would really recommend this class. Hayley was great, and it was very relaxing being able to do this in your own home. The foliage/materials are really high quality and there is plenty of them. Everyone in our group was able to make a gorgeous wreath with Hayley's guidance. We all had a great time and would definitely book again in the future.

Such beautiful resources were sent within just a few days. This was a very professional and enjoyable event. Fantastic teaching by Hayley with easy to follow instructions. It was a very uplifting and fun experience. The finished product was great value for money.

Had such a lovely time making my wreath! Was a great way to kick off the festive season and the end product looks wonderful on my front door! Hayley is a great teacher and was super helpful and informative on every step of the process.

Absolutely excellent class. All the materials sent in advance and the class itself was well presented with each step carefully worked through in a lovely friendly environment
review
Anna - November 29th
The class exceeded my expectations. I arranged a private class with my family and Hayley organised the postage of all the equipment seamlessly. The teacher created a calm and exclusive atmosphere and we all managed to make a wreath we were proud to hang. The materials sent were more than enough and I managed to make extra decorations with the excess. The oranges, pinecones and cinnamon sticks look really traditional and give a really expensive finish. The teacher has a professional camera and a close up camera angle so you can see really clearly what you need to do at each step. I would definitely recommend the class and looking forward to doing it again next year.
review
Karen - November 29th
I loved this class! Hayley is so warm and friendly. She had sent a wonderful box of kit before the class filled with lots of everything we needed to make a wreath, she certainly didn’t scrimp! The set up is great with an extra close up camera so you can see her hands close up. She explains every in detail and repeated anything we didn’t get the first time. Such a great class, I will definitely be booking more of her classes.
review
Anna Myers - November 28th
My Mum and I had a wonderful experience with Hayley, making a wreath from scratch and have the opportunity to decorate it with pine cones, cinnamon sticks, dried oranges and ribbons! An abundance of good quality fresh produce. Hayley was very friendly, patient and helpful and had lots of great ideas to make the wreath look beautiful! We were hesitant about doing the experience at home, but it was very easy to login on Zoom with 2 different cameras to make the visibility of the wreath making extra easy! Would highly recommend a very festive class!

This was a brilliant class. It was really exciting to receive all the supplies in the post, and the class was well-paced, relaxed and fun. I was so pleased with my wreath and had a great morning with a very friendly and helpful instructor
review
Cate - November 23rd
I couldn't recommend this workshop more - it's such a lovely way to spend lockdown at home by getting creative and making something with your own hands. Hayley sent a box with everything we needed prior to the workshop and helped guide us through making our wreaths from scratch and decorating them. I'm so pleased with the results and feel well and truly ready for Christmas now!
review
Louise Mackenzie - November 22nd
Loved learning a new skill and doing something creative! The wreath kit had plenty of everything and beautiful decorative items. Hayley’s set up allowed her to show the intricate parts close up so we could see exactly what she was doing. Fun and festive class! I’ve had so many compliments on my beautiful wreath!

review
Victoria - November 21st
This was brilliant! A wonderful box of goodies arrived in advance. The workshop was really friendly and the instructions from Hayley were so easy to follow with great camera close ups. The materials were great with more than enough for the wreath with a few leftovers to get creative with afterwards. A very enjoyable few hours spent in the workshop and a great quality wreath that is now hanging on my front door!
