I took myy daughter to Holly’s Succulent workshop as a birthday gift and we had the most amazing time. Holly is just fantastic- she was so welcoming, warm , interesting and attentive and it’s clear how much love and effort she has put in to making her studio and her workshops as charming and perfect as possible. Her attention to detail makes all the difference, from the nibbles, the wonderful array of succulents to choose from, different colours of pebbles, embellishments to the miniature gardening tool kits, we appreciated every little part! And to top it off we now have a beautiful glass terrarium to care for to show for it! Throughly recommend this- we had great fun. Thank you Holly!

What a fantastic class! Holly was very sweet and super knowledgeable. Upon arrival, she had cookies, nuts, chocolates & tea ready and all the floral materials prepared on the table. It was a bit of a trek from where I was staying but definitely work the commute for a great class. Thank you!

My nephew (12 years old) and I thoroughly enjoyed our succulent workshop with Holly, which I had booked as a Christmas present. Holly is so warm and friendly, and as you would expect is very knowledgable. We learned so much, but most importantly had a really fun afternoon session making our own terrariums. It was just the two of us working with her in her gorgeous shop. I would really recommend this workshop to anyone. We had a fab time and have memories, and terrariums, to treasure. Thanks Holly!!!

Holly and the Ivy ran a fantastic workshop for my daughter’s 10th birthday party. We had a small crowd of nine girls. Holly was just fantastic and all the girls (and their mums) have thanked us for a brilliant time. Highly recommend!

Loved the workshop very much! Holly is a great teacher, very patient and full of knowledge. Love her little shop, it's filled with greenery and flowers, so pretty and smell so fresh! The whole experience was just so lovely! I'm definitely coming back for more workshops.
