Khin was an absolute delight! He lead us through a very insightful tour of the local flower market and gave us time to explore the market to soak it all in. He then lead us back to his beautiful studio for a quick but detailed tutorial on how to create our own bouquets. I was quite thrilled with the results of our labor. Khin was charming, helpful, and made this a wonderful experience for all. I highly recommend it.

We had an amazing morning with Khin. We started at the beautiful flower market with Khin explaining about the different flowers and how he selects them. Moving to his studio to arrange our own bouquet and have hands on experience. Khin has a lots of knowledge, excellent taste and great character. For flower lovers it is a great experience!!!
Marion Birrell - 6 April 2022
A fabulous morning with Khin. So engaging & knowledgeable, the perfect intro for the flower novice. The trip to the flower market was a real experience - and worth the early start. Enjoyed the workshop too…thank you Khin!
Anne Parker - 13 March 2022
I learnt a lot. A very helpful teacher.
Samantha Fanning - 27 February 2022
What a great morning! Khin brought us on a fab tour of the market, and was so knowledgeable, with great tips. I am so lacking in creativity, but he helped me see how to turn a collection of seasonal flowers into a beautiful bouquet, that's still looking gorgeous a week later. I don't feel remotely intimidated to give it a try myself now, which is the best result I could've asked for.
Ramona - 19 February 2022
I have really enjoyed The Flower Market tour and workshop with Khin. He is so friendly and patient, passionate and knowledgeable! I loved the seasonal flowers we selected together and arranged into a beautiful bouquet! The whole experience was the perfect birthday present for me!
Alexandra - 16 February 2022
Booked this for mum’s birthday and we had a wonderful time with Khin. Thanks for the informative and fun workshop !
Sonia - 5 February 2022
Khin is super friendly, enthusiastic and very informative. I appreciated the tour around the flower market, which helped me understand how the market is run and purchases are made. It’s given me the confidence to shop there as a layperson. Khin chose a beautiful and generous selection of flowers for us to make a large bouquet each following a demonstration.
Hannah Tyler - 17 October 2021
Khin was super friendly and easy to chat to. Learnt loads when we visited the flower market and really enjoyed learning how to put together the bouquet. 100% would recommend.
Margaux Cohen - 10 October 2021
Great floristry workshop with Khin who showed us around the flower market with lots of knowledge and enthusiasm. His cosy studio is full of beautiful flowers which is inspiring. He explained the techniques very clearly and patiently. Highly recommend!
Julie - 14 August 2021
Khin is very knowledgeable and super friendly. I has a ball and I can’t stop looking at the result. I would definitely do it again!
Charlotte Webber - 28 June 2021
I really enjoyed this course and learnt so much, very happy!
Linda Custance - 7 June 2021
Khin was a great host showing us round the flower market and I now feel confident enough to go there on my own. We all made natural-looking bouquets with sweet peas as the main flower which I was very pleased with. The flower studio is very small so if you have any concerns about being in close contact with people I would suggest that this is not the class for you.
Steven - 2 June 2021
Khin is a very friendly and informative teacher. He is patient, fun and thorough. He gave us a lovely tour of the flower market and shared his top tips along the way. I was really impressed by his knowledge of floristry. The workshop itself was excellent. Khin allows you to express yourself individually while guiding you through the process which means you genuinely walk away with learnings. I will definitely look to do another session. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who is looking to dip their toe in floristry.
Bryony Sym - 1 June 2021
The second time I've done this class and both times have been lovely. You learn everything you need to know to be able to navigate the market by yourself and you leave the class with a beautiful bouquet. Highly recommend.
Georgina Waite - 1 June 2021
Amazing day! Such a fun and informative tour of the market, followed by a lovely relaxing time making the bouquet with a wonderful selection of flowers.
Evie - 23 May 2021
I had such a wonderful morning taking this course with Khin. Thoughtful, informative & relaxing and an extra bonus being hosted in the Korean tea house with tea and vegan jellies. I would 100% recommend this course and would love to do it all over again!
Kate - 20 May 2021
It's just an exciting and informative trip! The instructor is so nice and sophisticated in the floristry industry. Learnt a lot in the 3 hours, don't miss it!
Lucy - 3 May 2021
Khin was wonderful! From the moment we met we felt at ease and his knowledge of the flower market was great. Equally he made us feel at ease over our mutual and dislike of various flowers and we darted around to different areas that had different interesting flowers. Going back to the studio was just as fun, he taught us how to condition and construct a bouquet and I cannot wait to try to do it again!!
Tahnaya - 18 November 2020
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!
Hannah - 19 September 2020
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!
Georgina Spencer - 12 March 2020
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 - 21 February 2020
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 - 17 February 2020
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.
Javier - 20 January 2020
Khin is a experimented and very professional man. He knows a lot of floristry and how to teach and manage groups. The workshop was fabulous, specially because the visit to the flower market and making your own flower arrangement. Thanks Khin!
Reanne - 19 January 2020
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.
Bryony Sym - 18 January 2020
Khin was a great teacher, really knowledgable and friendly, he made into a lovely morning and I was delighted with the flowers he sent me home with. Would 100% recommend.
Lisa - 26 November 2019
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 - 18 November 2019
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 :)
Elizabeth Mullings - 12 November 2019
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.
Catherine - 26 October 2019
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.

Kristina Holley - 19 October 2019
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.
Kristina Holley - 19 October 2019
Learnt about the market itself and what to look for. Also learnt about the preparation and care of the flowers and how ti make them last as long as possible, as well as the best technique to use when arranging. Khin was really knowledgable and enthusiastic
Stella - 17 October 2019

Stephanie - 27 August 2019
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.
Laura - 7 July 2019
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
Kelly - 4 July 2019
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!
Sophie - 13 May 2019
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!
Natasha - 14 April 2019
Khin was a great teacher and was really easy to work with . I had a great time exploring the market and learning about the right techniques and materials to use, thank you!

Amazing! This was one of my favorite experiences I have had yet in London, and the best floral class and I have done many! Khin is so personable and so knowledgable. I will be booking more class with him soon. He's the best!
