I absolutely loved this class! Khin was a great teacher, friendly, chatty & experienced. I definitely plan to do another class with him again in the future. It is also a great class to do during this pandemic (when restrictions allow for it). It was 1-on-1 and we both wore masks, so I wouldn't hold off waiting until life is back to normal as it is the perfect activity when we have a very limited amount of activities we can do these days! 100% recommend :) Thanks Khin!

Khin was excellent and very informative. His knowledge about the flower market and industry is unparalleled and I learnt loads from him. We then went back to his workshop to create our own bouquet and he made an amazing bouquet! Would thoroughly recommend!

A fascinating trip to New Covent Garden Mkt. Khin was most informative about the flowers and what to choose. I was thrilled with the flower arrangement I put together under his guidance - learning how and where to place the different sized flowers and using plenty of foliage to build the display. Would thoroughly recommend

Had a great Saturday morning touring around the flower market and getting "insider tips" from Khin. He was very flexible and gave us the freedom to have a look around ourselves too. After the market we made our way to his beautiful studio where he had prepared all the flowers for us in advance and gave us lots of tips on how to arrange our hand-tied bouquet and how to care for the arrangement afterwards. Overall I would highly recommend this course with Khin as he's an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guy!

Muneera - February 21st
The workshop was very informative and took us in-depth into the world of floristry and flower arrangements. The instructor took us throughout the flower market and showed us the best places to pick out flowers. We then went on to his studio, where he kindly took us through step by step on how to make a flower arrangement. When it was time for us to make our own arrangement, he let us take creative liberties with how we arranged them and helped us along the way. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone curious about floristry and who wants to start making flower arrangements for their own home!

Huma - February 17th
I found the course to be very informative. It was interesting to visit the flower market and to get some background knowledge on the workings of the market; what to look for when selecting flowers and expert knowledge on the variety of flowers that are on offer. I found the flower arranging session very helpful too, the tips and tricks were very valuable. The teacher, Chin, was very friendly, approachable and inspirational. This is a fantastic course for beginners, particularly those thinking of entering the world of floristry.

Reanne - January 19th
Khin gave me confidence in going to a flower market, what to expect, showed us around the area and gave us tips on some equipments needed. Khin is very informative and friendly. He went through the basics of flower arranging; how to handle the bouquet and given us insight on how to make it pleasing to the eye. He encouraged us to be creative! The venue is comfortable and had enough space for 4 students, not to mention his beautiful work and it’s lovely being surrounded by flowers! Totally recommend.

A wonderful way to spend Saturday morning - Khin brought us around the flower market and sharing with us his knowledge and experience then we went to his studio where we arranged a huge bouquet of flowers under his watch, using flowers that are not commonly seen in supermarket florists! It makes me feel more confident to try arranging my own flower arrangements and to go back to the amazing flower market! Thanks Khin for the fun day!

Holly - November 18th
My mum and I had such a lovely morning with Khin. It was brilliant! The tour of the market was really interesting, and I felt like I learnt lots when we did the arranging. Khin is a brilliant teacher - and very generous too. We left with two huge, beautiful bouquets. We had a great time, I can’t recommend enough! Thank you :)

I thoroughly enjoyed the market visit and flower making class with Khin. He was extremely friendly and had a wealth of knowledge which he was willing to share. He is also very passion which also makes the class more enjoyably. The classes are very intimate which means lots of opportunity to ask questions. Highly recommended.

A great morning of well thought out guidance and tuition. We walked around the market with Khin, and then went to his workshop to learn to create a hand-tied bouquet. We learnt a lot and the vibe struck a good balance between informative and relaxed.

I learnt about the market itself and what to look for when visiting, along with lots of new flower names. Khin was really knowledgable and enthusiastic and taught us a lot about the preparation, arranging technique and aftercare of the flowers to help them last as long as possible.

An incredible workshop! Khin is very knowledgeable and super warm and friendly. The visit to the flower market was a great start to get you excited about the prospects of doing this on your own in the future and I felt like I came away with great tips and tricks to working with flowers. His style of floristry also felt very approachable as he didn't have set rules and allowed for our own creativity to help shape our final project.

This was so good! Kihn is so so lovely. He was a great teacher. I loved the visit to the market - it was amazing to finally see the place. Everyone seemed to know him. He gave me great tips on buying aswell as flower arranging. I would definitely sign up to more of his workshops. It was also amazing as it ended up being a one on one. I would highly recommend booking if you are looking!!! Thanks again xxxx

This was a gift for a friend's birthday--she loved it! Khin was very kind and knowledgable and went out of his way to make her big day special. Thank you so much!

An excellent class - Khin was a really enthusiastic yet patient teacher, and I learned so much. It was v interesting hearing about his personal journey into floristry, and he gave a great tour of the flower market, which I will definitely be returning to using his tips! I thought the class was on the expensive side when I booked it, but having done the class I would say it is 100% worth it - you make a bouquet that you would easily pay £30 - £40 for in a florist and there are three hours of tuition. Such a great way to spend a Saturday morning!
